Leading From Within and Leading Outside the Museum Workshop Highlights

Join us at Kolkata Centre for Creativity for an inspiring workshop titled ‘Leading From Within and Leading Outside the Museum’ in collaboration with ICOM-INTERCOM and the Indian Museum. Led by Dr Goranka Horjan, an art historian and Chair of INTERCOM, the workshop explores the challenges and experiences faced by leaders in museums and cultural organizations.

Date: 1 September

Time: 2pm – 4pm

Venue: Indian Museum, Main Building

This workshop is a perfect opportunity for museum professionals, curators, decision-makers and professionals in the cultural sector to enhance their expertise, broaden their networks, and develop new ideas.

The workshop strikes a balance between theoretical and practical aspects, both within and outside the museum and cultural realm. Participants can expect to gain fresh ideas, expertise, and foster exchanges with museum professionals from diverse organizations, thereby expanding their professional networks. Key topics covered during the workshop include:

Part 1 – Leadership within the organization:
Defining leadership and its responsibilities
Empowering staff and fostering mutual learning
Developing ourselves and our staff for growth
Formulating an Action Plan to be pursued by INTERCOM

Part 2 – Leadership outside the organization:
Identifying areas of influence and control
Effective museum advocacy strategies
Communication and messaging when advocating for the museum
Showcasing examples of supporting government objectives
Learning from one another and developing a collective voice

The ultimate goal of the workshop is to create an Action Plan that outlines how INTERCOM, as a collective, can support the development of leadership resources for museum directors, curators, and other decision-makers.
