A Nuanced Approach to Working With Veterans

Founded in 2009, MuseumNext brings museum leaders, founders and innovators from around the world together to ask, “What’s next for museums?” In doing so, the group publishes a news and ideas-orientated website and sponsors annual conferences in New York and Amsterdam.

I was asked to make a presentation to their members in New York in November, 2016.

Because I was the director of one of the largest community outreach programs at the Chicago Botanic Garden, they were interested in my views on how a museum can best decide how to serve the community in which it is located.

In my talk, I described the various veterans programs at the Garden, focusing on how we identified a set of needs in our community, identified potential partners, and then found ways to use our own special expertise to serve them.
