Planning and Design for Native Museums and Exhibitions
Wednesday, October 9th, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon
The registration for this year’s Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums meeting is now open! The title of the conference is “Navigating Cultural Survival in the 21st Century.” I’ll be presenting a session with Shawn Evans.
This session will share best practices in planning for museums and exhibitions. Presenters will dive into the related processes of strategic planning, master planning, facilities planning, and interpretive planning. They will focus on the important unique qualities of tribal museums and how these processes differ from non-tribal institutions. A chronological overview from creating and executing the strategic plan and master plans to the more detailed planning spaces for exhibitions, programs and collections storage will be provided, as well as historic preservation and community engagement. This session will be particularly relevant to tribes who are early in the planning process.
