Event Details

About the Workshop

Are you inspired to co-create with your community? Do you want your community in the driver's seat (or at least in the car) for the design of a new or current program, change initiative, exhibit, or building? Are you hungry to create a lasting impact that betters your corner of the world? Are you saying yes but asking HOW? 

This Bootcamp + Design Lab will build your and your museum’s muscles to co-create for impact and change with your community in ways that are deep, authentic, and connective. 

Designed to be a unique combination of receiving and doing--we will explore the how, why, and what of co-creation, but also give you applicable new mindsets, practices, design prompts and ways of moving.

During a rapid design sprint and lab, you will be guided to envision and integrate co-creation into a current initiative, desired partnership or project (small or large). We promise it will be playful, impactful and the sparks will fly.

There will be a follow-up workshop at TAM 2022 on Thursday, March 24 in Waco. More information for the Waco workshop can be found on the TAM 2022 Event page. 

About the Presenter

This creative Bootcamp + Design Lab will be led by Holly Truit, owner of Holly Truitt Consulting - a firm that helps clients to co-create with their communities and end-users. Clients range from Fortune 500 companies to leading museums, to governments, to economic catalyzers -- all emerge from this work as better listeners, designers, and co-creators. And, most importantly, new insights, innovations, leverage opportunities to further their impact and work with, for, and by their community. A lecturer at Stanford, author, and researcher, she has led more than $13.5 million in federal grant funds in community co-creation and designing for change.

Thanks to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston for underwriting the workshop venue.
