Workshop 9 Exhibition Planning and Design: Understanding the Design/Build Process
Thursday, September 10, 9:00 AM-5:00 PM

This workshop shares best practices in exhibition planning and design.This is relevant if you are planning a new tribal museum or if you are expanding or renovating an existing museum or exhibition. We will present an overview from creating and executing the exhibition masterplan; to planning spaces for exhibitions, programs, and collections storage; to how to communicate with your exhibit design team to
achieve the best outcome. An overview of the processes by our panel will be followed by working in smaller groups on case studies, concluding with each group presenting their findings.
