"The world is but a canvas to the imagination." - Henry David Thoreau

The 2007 Museum Division Pre-Conference is an opportunity to reflect, renew, and restore your creativity and imagination. This year's theme was selected to encourage us to consider how we use creativity in our jobs and how museums may creatively inspire our visitors. Featured keynote speakers for the morning session at the Metropolitan Museum of Art are Eric Booth and Dr. Michael Hanchett Hanson. Eric Booth, director of the Mentoring Program at The Julliard School, is the author of The Everyday Work of Art. Dr. Hanson, Director of the Masters Concentration in Creativity and Cognition at Teachers College, Columbia University, looks at how creative meaning is constructed in different contexts and has focused his research on the roles of metaphor and irony in creative thinking. Following the morning session, participants may select ONE theme to follow during the afternoon:
1) Creativity and Leadership; 2)Artists and Educational Practice; 3) Technology; 4) Adult Programming; 5)Creative Parameters: Teaching in Collections; 6) Community Partnerships; 7) Building Audiences with Disabilities

Afternoon sessions will be held in various museums throughout New York City. The pre-conference will conclude with a reception hosted by the Education Department at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. More on Pre-Conference Workshop | More on NAEA Conference
