Stories are powerful. They engage visitors on a personal level, fix ideas and details in their
memories, and encourage empathy with unfamiliar historical people and events. This hands-on
workshop will help you understand and use story elements and genres to discover the most
compelling connection between your exhibition content and audience for your next history-based exhibition.

Cost: $50 (includes all materials, a story design review of interpretive plan drafts, and advice on
generic approaches)
