VPA 370: Whose Space? Museums, Cultural Institutions, and Community

Course description

This course is an investigation into the vital relationship between museums, cultural institutions, and communities.  The success of museums is no longer measured by internal resources: collections, funding, facilities, and staff, but instead by the external value they create for individuals and the diverse communities in which they exist. The course examines the role of museums and cultural institutions as facilitators of social change. (Prereq: Junior or Senior Standing)
