About the

Many museums now use outreach projects to establish their presence outside their own four walls. This is essential for institutions that are currently undergoing renovation and thus do not have access to their usual premises. They are particularly challenged to think about new ways of maintaining the connection to their audiences. Besides increased activity in the digital world, the public sphere is also being used and utilised. This involves testing out new exhibition concepts and developing communication formats, often with consequences for internal processes and responsibilities within the team. This workshop is devoted to the potential of times of closure: Drawing on specific examples, we will discuss what has proven itself and why, and what has not. What framework conditions and personnel requirements are needed? How can valuable, long-lasting contacts with the public be developed, and what challenges need to be considered? Based on this, we will finally get down to work ourselves and offer participants the opportunity to develop project ideas with a focus on their own working environment.
