A Collaboration Workbook from WolfBrown distills what was learned in a collaboration between six Brooklyn-based cultural institutions. The collaboration, entitled Heart of Brooklyn (HOB) included –Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park Alliance and Prospect Park Zoo. The goal of the workbook is to advance the field's understanding of how cultural institutions that share the same community can find common ground and build an organic and robust approach to collaboration.
Over the two-year period from 2011 to 2013, the six HOB cultural institutions designed, pilot tested, and evaluated a process for conceiving and implementing collaborative programs that address community needs. The overall purpose of the project was to build capacity for diagnosing and responding creatively to community needs through the diverse cultural assets of the six institutions.
