Creative Engagement

Trainer: Dawn Koceja, Milwaukee Public Museum

D
awn Koceja is the Accessibility Coordinator at the Milwaukee Public Museum where she has facilitated the SPARK! program for the last ten years. She has been trained at national museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian. She is a certified ADA Coordinator and a Dementia Specialist and hosts trainings on creative engagement and accessibility at conferences and workshops around the country.

Creative Engagement is the focus of this training inspired through the success of SPARK!, a cultural program for people with memory loss that is offered at museums throughout the country. The SPARK! program uses a variety of approaches that provide opportunities for a person to engage in the arts and culture through multisensory activities. This training will provide techniques to engage people through art and simple objects without having to visit a museum or gallery. Learn about these practices while gaining useful tips on interactions as we create, share and become inspired through a hands-on, interactive workshop.
