What is the NYSCA/GHHN Creativity Incubator?
It's a chance to put all your pre-conceptions aside, and use your imagination to experiment and explore different ways to  engage with different audiences. The program is hosted by a museum which becomes a lab - we use that space and the museum's collections to brainstorm ways to be more interactive and relevant. Activities are led by a "Museum Maverick" - in the past we have worked with Linda Norris and Rainey Tisdale, authors of Creativity in Museums , Franklin Vagnone of Twisted Preservation, Lia Tamborra from Museum Hack, Gonzalo Casals of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, and for New York City we will be bringing back Andrea Jones of Peak Experience Lab, who led our Southern Tier session in June 2018. Learn more about her work here:

One workshop was held in each of the regions to a sold out crowd of museum professionals around the state! We visited the Hudson Valley, Long Island and the Mohawk Valley in 2017. In 2018, we were in Western NY and the Southern Tier. We held our first session of 2019 up in the North County and for our seventh and final workshop, we're headed to Metro NYC.  Click here to see photos from the workshops. 

We're very excited to bring this unique opportunity to museums around our great state - and hope you'll join us on this journey to think more creatively! We can't wait to see what ideas hatch!

Workshop Fee: $25.00 ($35.00 for non-NYS registrants)

Fee includes lite breakfast, networking luncheon, and resource materials.

Psst...Our past workshops were sold out (with a waiting list!) - so make sure to secure your spot as soon as you can!

 The Creativity Incubator, a NYSCA/GHHN Partnerhip Program, is made possible with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
