We’ll both be at the American Association for State and Local History conference next week (October 3-6) in Salt Lake City. If you’re also attending, we’d love to talk to you about creativity. We’re holding a Museums & Creative Practice meet-up at the conference on Thursday, October 4 from 12:00 to 1:30. Bring your lunch and join us in the South Foyer of the convention center–we’ll have a little Museums & Creative Practice sign.
At the beginning of the meet-up we’ll update you on the project and run through the most important things we’ve learned so far, with the goal of sending you home from AASLH with some quick hits you can immediately start using at your museum. Then we’ll spend the bulk of our time working together on a brainstorming activity designed to help all of us find new ways to approach one of the core functions of history museums and historic sites.
Can’t come to the meet-up but want to talk to us about creativity anyway? Shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) and we’ll find some other time at the AASLH conference to get together.
