Dreicer's focus includes interpretive, strategic, and master planning. He has conceived, designed, and managed complex projects, including exhibition, book, web, and video offerings; and communicated a vision that engages partners and supporters. His work has been repeatedly recognized in national and international media.
Dreicer's success is the result of a process-based and people-centric approach. Creating conditions for collaboration and innovation are as important as assembling the team.
Process. Together we construct our world—places, communities, and the stories we tell about them. Projects that embody this viewpoint invite emotional connection and participation.
People. Audiences, visitors, guests, clients, patrons, members, and consumers—however you label them, they come first in project conception. This approach leads to modes of engagement that differ from standard curatorial practice.
