Join Powerhouse volunteer program manager Cate Purcell for a two-hour workshop on how to attract and inspire volunteer participation in your museum.

If you have ever wondered about the key ingredients for a long and fruitful working relationship with museum volunteers, then this workshop will be useful.

Cate has overseen the development and implementation of an integrated volunteer program at Powerhouse since 2002. The museum currently has 200 volunteers and places a strong emphasis on learning and collaboration within volunteer roles.

Some of the topics and strategies Cate will cover in this workshop are enhancing visitor experience, building the visitor experience through a volunteer tool kit, and connecting and sharing volunteer stories.

This event is designed for staff and volunteers working in museums and the collecting sector. The session will conclude with a one-hour tour, led by a museum registrar, of one of our storage areas.
