Museum Educator Series: In Touch with Art and Culture with Trish Maunder

by  Creative Learning Factory

Program image

This Webinar Presentation will feature a short Power Point presentation and video (filmed and distributed internationally by the Associated Press) featuring the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology and Anthropology’s popular Touch Program: Insights into Ancient Egypt. The session will highlight best practices for forming cultural partnerships with and for visitors who are blind or visually impaired as well as involving blind and visually impaired volunteers as Museum docents or guides.

We will also consider the revelatory quality of the tactile sense in art for everyone. Touch is the mother of the senses, the cornerstone of human experience and communication and as such can help us reconnect to memories and past experiences and develop a greater sensitivity and awareness to the world around us. This field of inquiry is informed by neuroscientists, curators, people with disabilities, artists, architects and others studying the phenomenology of touch.

Trish Maunder is an access coordinator and consultant for museums and art institutions. Currently the Special Programs Coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, she designs and presents touch tours for visitors who are blind and visually impaired. She also conducts workshops about Touch to artists, students and teachers. Trish has a Master of Arts Degree in Art Education from The University of the Arts.
