She had also made herself a resident community cat outside Aunty’s ground floor unit. Lucky never wandered away and would always remain outside Aunty’s home or the playground in front of it. On rainy days, especially during the monsoon season, she would place a carton box and umbrella outside for Lucky to shelter her from the rain. How do we share our bifurcated story as both a place to engage with art and history AND a place that builds community? NS: Why did you want to write this story? And I can see why – it’s consistent, well paced, emotional, and has some really great characters and dynamics. At the same time, from my background in the museum world, I’ve gotten to know some of these boards and board members and see how they operate. I just wanted to let everyone know that we have a group that meets once a month in Newport, South Wales. For our 3rd Friday series, we like to have an initial meeting with all of our collaborators and together go over the community program goals tied to the theme of the event. Alston’s report on the human rights implications of the shift will be presented to the UN general assembly on Friday.
It’s clear from visitor and member comments that they are also interested in the bigger picture, but it’s not obvious how we can share that bigger picture alongside the “come on Friday night for X” kind of messaging. We’re going to start doing a lot more rigorous research and experimentation in this area in the months to come. When we name what we do and why, we can be more open, authentic, and accountable in our work, especially with community partners. I feel so lucky to work in my community. How would you feel if your partner joined a social group and later found out that your ex left because of that? We’re exploring ways to become embedded in other parts of the civic landscape, ranging from social service providers to public transit. In the cases above, each group will behave in a way that will definitely NOT lead to a positive Customer Service experience.
We’ve gotten pretty good at doing this at museum programs, but it gets more complicated when we are working with a bonded group like a homeless center or a school tour. This is more than just a question of email–it’s a question of how we can best involve our energized participants in the deep work that underscores everything we do. The article both energized and frustrated me. Last week’s New York Times special section on museums featured a lead article by David Gelles on Wooing a New Generation of Museum Patrons. I was curious to learn more about what was behind the article. Choose recreation activities carefully – team games like football or basketball are not overly successful, but individual activities such as tennis, golf, tenpin bowling or chess are more so. Considering the fact that yard signs are cost efficient, it is difficult to find a more effective way to promote political campaign rather than to use political lawn signs.
Changes in height, weight and internal organs are concerned with the physical development. Culture is powerful and invisible and its effects are far reaching. Studies have documented considerable variation in perceptions of safety culture across organizations and job descriptions. As Sun Tzu, a Chinese military general from 3000 BC, indicated in his explanation of strategy, culture forms an integral part of any organizational strategy. In turn, General Musharraf has taken advantage of the friendly attitudes of the West not only to break his democracy pledge but also to shrink back from promises he made in when he took power. I appreciate the detail and time you took. Aunty took good care of Lucky. We want to do the sensitive cultural work of being good guests in others’ spaces, but we also want to make sure that our engagement in their spaces creates intersections and bridges across multiple groups. I cover all these guys who make 7, 8 figures a year.
It doesn’t make any sense. CAVANAUGH: And do you get the sense that Baxter enjoys doing this? To see change happening because of the work we are doing. I was excited to see coverage of an important issue of generational shift, but I was frustrated that it appeared to perpetuate traditional, clubbish standards of donor cultivation. Aunty said Lucky appeared with a “chopped” off paw one day. A few days ago, a caregiver from Jurong East posted about a cat with a missing paw found there. Despite not given proper treatment, Lucky’s wound healed leaving her with a stump where the paw used to be and she walked around with a limp. DG: The initial idea really came from me trying to bridge my current beat – finance, Wall Street, mergers and acquisitions — and thinking about how that can apply to the museum world. In current times, mass media has played a major role in helping form public opinions.
