Gallery Systems’ Jon Thristan is hosting the workshop Improving Messy Situations: A Very Brief Introduction to Soft Systems Thinking and Practise, on Monday October 3, providing a hands-on introduction to identifying actions, which are both effective and do-able, and improving the complexities of working between museums and partner organizations.
