Local History Workshops

Strong Identities

History enterprises often fully engage their communities in the many ways that history impacts daily life. Each segment of audience engages in specific ways, and each segment therefore perceives what you do in different ways. As those segments begin to learn more they expect to find the familiar in the new, be it in exhibits, programming, evaluation, or facilities. What our audiences don't see is as important to a strong identity as what they do see, especially in planning, policy, collections management, and plant management. Learn the publicly visible and invisible wise practices that contribute to a strong identity for your history organization.

The annual Spring Workshops focus on elements of a strong identity from highly visible programs like capital campaigns and exhibits, to the nearly invisible like facility management and even basic policy. Come, renew your contacts with colleagues and learn several useful ways to strengthen the identity of history.
