Creative Ways is a collaborative endeavor between Benny Ferdman and Shari Davis. Since 1984 we have worked together, and partnered with others, to produce exhibitions, curricula, public art and educational programs that creatively explore history, culture and identity, and build connections across communities. Bringing decades of educational leadership and interdisciplinary program development, Shari and Benny work with organizations and businesses as consultants and facilitators to help teams actualize new educational and creative projects.
What we do:
Community & Public Art for public spaces and community events.
Educational Curricula Design, both digital and hands-on, for organizations, schools, museums. Group Facilitation, leading community conversations to build connections across differences. Training for Educators, encompassing culture, creativity and the art of inspired teaching. Museum Consulting, including curating, design of school tour programs, pre and post exhibit kits, writing of exhibit educational guides.
Exhibit Production, interpretive design, exhibit fabrication, writing text and exhibit guides. Interactive, Hands-on Exhibit Components to complement permanent or temporary shows in more traditional museum settings. Traveling Exhibitions which explore the intersection of art and cultural traditions.
