Oregon Heritage Fall Workshops – Registration Open

Sharing Our Stories: Community-Based Heritage Planning Workshop

Free; Registration Required

Are you aiming to create or rejuvenate an exhibit, Main Street signage project, walking tour, website, annual event, or other heritage-related project? Interested in reaching out to more than just the usual suspects? Wondering how to find, engage, and involve community members whose stories aren’t widely known?

This interactive workshop offers new ideas and best practices for interpreting your community’s history from multiple viewpoints and perspectives. Imagine ways to go beyond the standard timeline approach, focusing on people, places, and experiences that continue to shape and influence life in your community.

Working in small groups, guided by a veteran interpretive planner, you’ll practice brainstorming and concept development, and develop unique, authentic visitor experiences. Finally, you will apply inclusive planning principles to a current project from your own institution. Presented by Alice Parman, interpretive consultant.

*Each organization represented at the workshop will receive a copy of “Exhibit Makeovers: A Do-It-Yourself Workbook for Small Museums,” second edition.
