Creativity in Museum Practice
By

Rating
With this book, museum professionals can learn how to unleash creative potential throughout their institution. Drawing from a wide range of research on creativity as well as insights from today's most creative museum leaders, the authors present a set of practical principles about how museum workers at any level-not just those in "creative positions"-can make a place for creativity in their daily practice. Replete with creativity exercises and stories from the field, the book guides readers in developing an internal culture of creative learning, as well as delivering increased value to museum audiences.

Reviews

I have begun a list of friends and colleagues to whom I wish to gift copiessome to encourage their existing creative practices and others to get them started. This book should be a valuable contribution to the field and a must-read for any museum studies students. Marianne Bez, Museum Consultant" Extremely practical and useable as a toolkit. Creativity is sparked by new information, and these practical new ideas definitely sparked my imagination. I especially looked forward to the Your Creative Practice sections sprinkled throughout the book. I loved getting a behind-the-scenes look at how others in the business form their ideas. It's exactly the type of book I buy when I want to be reinvigorated. You'll want to underline passages, dog-ear the pages, and mark up the margins.
