Creating Exhibitions Using Design Thinking
Presenters: Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center, and High Museum of Art
When: Saturday, January 27, 2024, 9:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m.
Location: Atlanta History Center
Discover how the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center, and High Museum of Art use the five phases of the design thinking process—empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test—in creating their exhibitions. We’ll discuss ways cultural institutions engage audiences, encourage thoughtful discussion, and convey information through hands-on experiences. We’ll also explore how your students can do the same by creating their own exhibition. What topics could your students explore when designing an interactive exhibition experience?
Parking at the Atlanta History Center is free. Directions are available here.
Across time, cultures, and continents, animals have made their mark on history. They have myriad depictions in stories and other media, some more believable than others. Join the Michael C. Carlos Museum, Georgia Aquarium, and Zoo Atlanta as we both explore the science behind the legends surrounding these fantastic beasts and create some of our own.
