This Preservation Leadership TrainingĀ®, developed in partnership with Museum Hue, will provide attendees with the tools and strategies to center underrepresented stories at historic sites.Ā Over three days, attendees will learn best practices for interpreting, collecting, and building partnerships to replace exclusionary narratives with ones that honor the full American experience. Participants will learn from guest speakers, and from each other, as they talk through the challenges of updating interpretation at their historic sites. This work will culminate in a single real-world case study that will give them an opportunity to put their new knowledge into practice.
