Tools for Effective Communication in the Docent Community (2017 Montreal)

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA

In this session, the presenters will share the ways in which the Gallery Instructor program – the docent program at the MFA – has used print material, the Internet and special programming to keep Gallery Instructors (GIs) connected while addressing the needs of a growing and changing organization. These will include examples of our GI-to-GI Google listserve, staff-to-GI online weekly newsletter and GI special online and print magazine. The presenters will also explain the special programs and events that were developed to bring the GIs together, not only inside the museum, but outside the museum as well.

Presenters: Ellen Zarrow-Nissenbaum and Patti Bifulco
