An Interview with Tom Loughman, Director and CEO of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Tom Loughman discusses how museums might reimagine their relationship with audiences in light of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. He identifies unexpected opportunities that have emerged from the COVID-19 shutdown and the ways in which museum leaders are thinking deeply and broadly about the role docents play in the future. He addresses what docents and guides can do to prepare for serving the public and our institutions. As an organization run by docents for docents, we asked Loughman what resources he thinks the NDSC should focus on providing that would have the most impact now and going forward. NDSC Regional Director Joanne Eudy conducts this fascinating interview. Watch it here!
