Voiced: Empowering our community
How can we drive creativity through the voices of our community? At Louvre Abu Dhabi, we direct our energy to giving agency and empowering our participants by offering the museum as a platform and an experimental ground.
While reaching to different ages, professions, and interests, we listen to our community and in turn provide tools and information that allow for a rich and an engaging experience with the museum and its collection.
This talk focuses on aspects of programming in creative learning, collaboration and community engagement that tune in and turn up the volume on the voices of our diverse community in the UAE.
