CEVA brings together professionals from a variety of museums and from other branches of the education profession who may not ordinarily interact with each other, and provides opportunities for discussing issues that relate to the theory and practice of museum education that are not usually available within the context of large scale conferences.
Since the spring of 2008 CEVA's professional colloquia have focused on a variety of different issues that are currently subjects for discussion in the museum world. Colloquia include participants from museums of various kinds: large and small, urban and rural, from across the United States and beyond. Reactions to these events have been very positive:
“What a pleasure and a luxury to have time with colleagues and with my own thoughts.”
“Each of the attendees brought such a unique perspective to the topic. I know we all went away with dozens of new ideas and perspectives to enrich our institutions.”
“I loved the intimate format of the group and the honest and open sharing that took place throughout the sessions.”
“It restored my faith in art gallery education.”
