Throughout 2016, The TPM Listening Tour will gather together groups of Museum Board members, staff, volunteers, supporters, Museum Members, and the general public, to informal, small group conversations with the Museum’s executive director, Mark Osborne. Beginning Saturday, May 14, at 10 a.m., The Listening Tour conversations will take place at The Printing Museum in its theater. Conversations will continue each month on the second Saturday (please see the full schedule below) through November, 2016. The conversations will be led by the Mr. Osborne, with him giving some brief introductory remarks and then, acting as moderator for the discussion. A list of questions will be developed to guide the conversation, but the overall course of the dialogue will be driven by the participants. Mr. Osborne will continue to travel the city to meet with community leaders, educators and elected officials.

The goals of The TPM Listening Tour remain the same: a) to gain a better understanding of the needs of our community, b) to determine what role a museum dedicated to printing can play in our digital age, and c) to see how we can become more accessible and relevant to those we serve.
