    Virtual Program

    Partnership As Strategy: A Leadership Conversation

    Friday, April 23 at 12 PM

    Marsha L. Semmel, Principal, Marsha Semmel Consulting

    Deborah Schwartz, Independent Consultant, The Center for Brooklyn History


    In this session, two senior museum leaders who have experienced how partnerships strengthen museums, build strong community ties, and support the "bottom line," use case studies to discuss the why and how of museum community partnerships, including coping with inevitable 'potholes' on the road to partnership success.  What are the opportunities, challenges, and  imperatives for museum-community partnerships in the current environment, when our museums are dealing with the effects of the pandemic; the mandate to reckon with equity,  inclusion, and social justice; and a reconsideration of business models? Ample time will be devoted to addressing attendees' specific partnership challenges.

    Crowdsourcing, Community and the Challenge of Institutional Leadership

    Friday, May 7 at 12 PM

    Rob Fields, Former President & Executive Director, Weeksville Heritage Center


    Rob Fields is the former President & Executive Director of Weeksville Heritage Center, an historic house museum in Brooklyn dedicated to keeping the history of one of the largest free black communities in pre-Civil War America relevant and resonant for contemporary audiences. In 2019, he spearheaded a crowdsourcing campaign that raised over  $700,000 to save the institution from closing its doors. Because of his close work with New York City and the success of the crowdfunding campaign, Weeksville became the first new member of the city’s Cultural Institutions Group (CIG) in February 2020, the first organization to receive the designation in over 20 years. The CIGs are a cohort of 34 cultural institutions that have permanent line items in the NYC budget. Prior to Weeksville, Rob was the marketing director for CMO Initiatives at the Association of National Advertisers, a marketing industry trade association.  More information on him is available at http://robfields.com.

    Hannah Fox, Director of Projects and Programmes for Derby Museums


    Hannah Fox is the Director of Projects and Programmes for Derby Museums. She has led the development and delivery of the UK’s new Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill, widely regarded as the world’s first modern factory site. With the project nearing completion, Hannah will share the journey they’ve been on to embed co-production and human-centered design methodologies into a major museum development, where citizen curators and makers are at the heart of the $25M project to ‘make’ the Museum of Making.

    Trained as a designer and photographer, Hannah’s career has involved producing cross-sector collaborative projects that put people at the heart of how places, products, and services are co-designed. She sits on several museum advisory boards and is part of the NAS Creative Community Fellowship, a cultural and social entrepreneurs network. Hannah consults on human-centered and co-production methodologies with people and organizations internationally and has an accent that can be hard to pinpoint…

    Serving New York's Collecting Institutions: The DHPSNY Initiative

    Friday, June 25 at 12 PM

    Anastasia Matijkiw, Program Manager, DHPSNY

    Miranda Peters, VP of Collections & Digital Production, Fort Ticonderoga

    Tracy Pfaff, Executive Director, Huntington Historical Society

    Ellen Adams, Director/Curator, Alice T. Miner Museum

    Michael Perekrestov, Executive Director, Russian History Museum


    Across New York, historical records are held by a wide range of organizations, many of which operate on the margins of the profession. This session will consist of conversations with organizations, highlighting how DHPSNY has connected them with the tools they need to care for their archival collections.

     

    Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York is a collaboration between two long-running New York programs dedicated to service and support for archival and library research collections throughout the state: the New York State Archives Documentary Heritage Program and the New York State Library Conservation/Preservation Program. DHPSNY is supported by the New York State Archives, New York State Library, Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA), and New York State Education Department. DHPSNY’s Strategic Planning Assistance curriculum was developed in collaboration with the New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON). 

    Currently, DHPSNY is only offering services virtually. 

    Learn more about DHPSNY and its programs and services at dhpsny.org. For assistance, questions about eligibility, or additional information, contact the DHPSNY team at info@dhpsny.org or (215) 545-0613 ext. 338.
