The BCMA is proud to announce the second installment in our monthly professional development webinar series!

Join colleagues from around the province on May 16 for “Activate Your Exhibition,” presented by the Beaty Biodiversity Museum’s Yukiko Stranger-Galey and Derek Tan.

This webinar also falls on day 3 of BC Museums Week 2017.  We will be exploring Cultural Exchange and Museum Partners throughout the day – what better way to participate than joining this webinar and learning from your colleagues?

Webinar Description:

How do you encourage participatory interactions with your exhibit? Using examples from the Beaty Biodiversity Museum’s temporary exhibitions, this webinar will describe a suite of simple, self-led, and scalable activities that can be easily incorporated into exhibits when big-budget interactives or educator-led programming aren’t available. What worked, what didn’t, how did we build it, and how much did it cost?

Yukiko Stranger-Galey is the Exhibits & Design Manager for the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia, where she develops exhibits that celebrate the wonder and diversity of the natural world. The opportunity to share the stories of the people, organisms, and objects in our world inspires her every day.

Derek Tan is the Digital Media Specialist at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. He has a background in biology and visual arts and currently designs, illustrates, and produces collaborative content for deployment across physical and digital platforms.
