This workshop focuses on storytelling in museum interpretation. Review the basics of effective storytelling and how object-based narrative can strengthen the impact of an exhibit.  Learn to use storytelling to connect your museum to your community in relevant and meaningful ways. How do you find and tell real, compelling stories based on collections or a significant place?  Among the topics covered by this workshop are: engaging multiple perspectives, identifying the “four truths” of a story, reframing questions, and approaching difficult history.
