Date: February 11-12, 2016; 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Location: The Factory in Port Union, NL

Exhibit planning is multidisciplinary in nature, incorporating a broad range of skills and expertise including content development, two and three dimensional design, fabrication, administration, and project management. Our course will touch on each of these areas, with a specific focus on exhibit communication as it relates to telling the story of the first and second world wars- What kinds of ideas can/should exhibits present? Who decides? What are the steps and considerations involved in translating that idea into an act of three-dimensional storytelling? How do we judge success? How do we balance or own professional/institutional objectives with the ultimate goal of developing
exhibits that are comfortable, engaging, stimulating, social and meaningful to visitors?
