 - How you could integrate art and artistic processes into your institution?

This webinar will be an introductory look at the power and potential of an arts/STEM interface in museum settings. It will feature Peter Richards, one of the pioneers of the movement, who will share the importance of the arts/STEM connection, how it was integrated into the museum culture, and the benefits he sees from this intersection. His presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
