El Museo de las Conceptas
Globally, museums have escalated their outreach endeavors to forge meaningful relationships with their communities. We worked with El Museo de Las Conceptas, a museum with religious art work in Cuenca, to create linkages with the local community. To this end, we produced an interactive and creativity-based workbook with an accompanying chaperone guide for school children to promote involvement in the museum. Using the workbook and chaperone guide in conjunction with each other as a format for a school program can form beneficial linkages to children within the community. Additionally, we believe that the workbook and guide can be used as marketing materials for the museum to attract the younger generation beyond structured school trips.
