Event description
Learn how communities can use exhibitions, programs, and public spaces to deepen and richen their understanding of Haudenosaunee culture.

About this Event

How can museums, historical societies and local communities deepen and richen their understanding of Haudenosaunee culture and develop tools for revisioning exhibitions, programs and public spaces in your own communities? Join Linda Norris, from The International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, in a workshop with four women expert historians, artists, and activists in a workshop to consider this question. Participants will learn how museums can connect the past to the present, and catalyze historical and personal memory to engage community members in today’s public spaces and social issues. Lunch is included at the workshop.

The International Coalition of Sites of Conscience is the only worldwide network of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives dedicated to remembering past struggles and addressing their contemporary legacies.

Participants will:

  • Learn different perspectives to rethink landscapes and museums
  • Participate in an Arc of Dialogue conversation method about those perspectives and understand how dialogue can be used in your own work
  • Begin to develop plans for rethinking public memorials, monuments, museums and landscapes in your own community

Who should attend?

  • Staff and volunteers at museums and historic sites
  • University students and faculty
  • Community members interested in landscape, design and social justice
  • And anybody else welcome!
