How would you prepare your organization to handle something that’s very controversial?
In this week’s video, you’re going to get a peak behind the scenes of how the Tacoma Art Museum turned controversy into great success.
Stephanie Stebich is the Director of the museum. She tells you the story of bringing a highly controversial exhibit to the museum and what they did to communicate with the community, with board members, with volunteers, and with staff. I think this is a story any nonprofit can draw from, even if you don’t deal with anything controversial. It’s really about different ways you can communicate and engage with your community.
Heck, after watching this, you might just look around for something you could do that would be controversial. 😉
This video is a bit longer than the normal weekly episodes, but there’s something to learn all the way through it.
If you have any stories or advice on handling controversy or communicating with your community, please share your advice or stories in a comment box under the video. Thanks.
