Bridging the Gap: Cultural Institutions and their Communities in the 21st Century
April 10, 2010
Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Illinois
Video games, the internet, amusement parks, and other forms of technology and entertainment are making it increasingly important for museums, archives, and historic sites to adapt and understand the needs of their visitors. How can these institutions remain relevant and adhere to their missions while serving the needs of a technologically advanced society? These are questions we hope to answer at the 2010 Eastern Illinois University Historical Administration Program Association Symposium. We are seeking presentation proposals that will illustrate how your institution is bridging this gap. Suggested presentation themes include, but are not limited to:
· Educational Programs
· Web 2.0
· Museum Exhibits
· Collections Plans
· Development and Membership
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact Stephanie Gaub at Stephanie.firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a Presentation Submission Form. Please complete the Presentation Submission Form and return it to Stephanie by mail or e-mail no later than October 15, 2009. Submitters will be notified by October 31, 2009 if their presentation has been accepted.
If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Gaub at Stephanie.email@example.com or 407-836-8587.
