Education & Interpretation
Museum professionals and researchers are exploring the body as a tool for sense-making, reflection, and connection. Integrating movement, mindfulness practices, immersive play, and performance into programs allows staff and visitors to respond to collections, the space, and each other in creative ways. In this session, learn about the developing practices and theories that view the body as a resource for engagement. Identify connections between embodied learning and your institution’s mission, and take home simple exercises you can try with staff and visitors.
