Why I’m Coming: Irina Zadov

Irina ZadovAlthough my experience is in Museum Education, I have recently found a passion for the place where programming and exhibits meet. I am particularly interested in participatory design and the social interactions that cultural institutions have the power to facilitate. As a field, I feel like we’re on the cusp of something truly revolutionary and collaboration is absolutely the way to get there. Also, it just so happens that the mission of the museum for which I work (Zeum, children’s arts and technology museum in San Franisco) is “to nurture the creativity, collaboration and communication of all youth and families.” 2 of the 3 ain’t bad 🙂
