QUAD QClub Programme Curator's International Collaboration
QUAD’s QClub Programme Curator, Abbie Canning, will be working in collaboration with John Hopkins University, in Baltimore, USA. John Hopkins University is America’s first research university and home to nine world-class academic divisions working together as one university. Abbie will be supporting students enrolled on the University’s ‘International Experiments in Community Engagement’ programme, focusing on QUAD’s community engagement with children and young people.
Linda Norris, from John Hopkins University, and co-author of Creativity in Museum Practice says “We are so thrilled to have QUAD participating with our students, facilitating conversation and action surrounding the ways creativity can transform museums and other organizations, shaping more compelling narratives and creating deeper, more inclusive, authentic community connections”.
Abbie Canning added “This is such a fantastic opportunity to work with the team from John Hopkins University. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share QUAD’s best practice in community engagement with children and young people and support students to develop their knowledge and ideas. I hope to be able to involve the young people accessing QUAD’s workshops in some of the new and experimental approaches developed throughout the course and I am really excited to see what evolves from this international collaboration”.
QUAD is a registered charity.
