Registration for the SGA Fall workshop, “Making Meaning: Planning and Implementing Archival Exhibitions” is now open!
Using hands-on exercises and case studies from museum studies programs at the University of South Carolina and Florida State University, this workshop will examine how to produce effective and inexpensive archival exhibitions for public audiences. Attention will be given to thinking about visitor needs and interests, selecting topics that are interesting to general audiences, and exploring the impact of Web 2.0 on interpretation. Learn how to set interpretive goals, write effective texts, and design attractive displays in this day-long workshop taught by Lynn Robertson and Lana Burgess, museum educators and professionals from the University of South Carolina.
The workshop will be held in Savannah, Georgia at the DeSoto Hilton on November 4, 2009 from 9:00-4:30. For more information and to register, visit the SGA education website.
