Event description
A 3-day workshop grounding participants in dialogue facilitation and dialogic interpretation to apply in museums, parks & historic sites.

About this Event

For twenty years, the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience has helped museums, historic sites and other public spaces become dynamic centers for community engagement through personalized training solutions grounded in the work of thought leaders, educators and human rights advocates around the world.

This three day workshop will work collaboratively with participants to develop strategies for building dialogic programs at their own sites. The workshop will focus on the structure and skills for facilitating dialogue on difficult history, examining site content and it's support for dialogue, and strategies for responding to visitors in order to enable the past to galvanize the future.

The workshop will involve short lectures, frequent small group work and active participation. All three days will be hosted at Arch Street Meeting House, located at 320 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.

There will be lunch breaks each day of the workshop; participants are responsible for their own room and board.

Facilitator: Braden Paynter

Braden Paynter, the Program Manager for Methodology and Practice at the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, supports Sites of Conscience members in developing programming, exhibitions and community engagement strategies. He also works with members to build the Coalition’s internal collection of resources, surfacing sites’ expertise and sharing it with others. Braden has trained dozens of organizations in dialogue and planning. He advises both members and non-members, as well as consulted on the new permanent exhibit of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Area. He has also designed and coordinated a two-year intensive training initiative in dialogic interpretation for Connecticut Landmarks. Currently leading our work with Ford’s Theatre, Braden’s past work has focused on using public education spaces to connect people to each other and the world around them. Before joining the Coalition, Braden worked with the National Park Service at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site where he oversaw public, education and professional development programs, web and social media, and exhibits.
