This workshop focuses on how temporary exhibitions can enhance and promote the mission of an institution, create new audiences and generate revenue.Starting with building an institutional strategy for exhibition making and partnership building, participants will explore the process behind making temporary exhibitions for display at home and for tour. This will include identifying exhibition objectives, shaping the narrative and content to create a compelling visitor experience, strategies for touring exhibitions nationally and internationally, and exploring the future of the temporary and touring exhibitions sector. The workshop will encourage a discursive and participatory approach. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own ideas and projects to the workshop and there will be time allocated for 1:1 consultation with the workshop facilitators.
