The Story's The Thing: Telling Your Story for Value and Impact
Buffalo Soldiers National Museum3816 Caroline Street

* Registration open until 11/6/22 at 11:59 PM ()
We believe that museums are valuable, but do we take that concept too much for granted? How can one museum, especially a small one, tell their unique story to prove their individual value to funders, supporters, and target audiences?
Through a combination of lecture, group discussion, role-playing, and individual work, participants will have crafted a draft of their institutional story, discussed how their story can help to set goals and make decisions, and selected a project to apply their story and strategy to in the future.
By the end of the day you will have:
- A review of interpretive principles, tools and techniques.
- Sample planning exercises that you can try out at your own institutions.
- Templates and planning documents that will help you to write your own institutional story and incorporate it into your strategic planning process.
This day-long workshop includes lunch and coffee. All activities will take place at the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum.
