Cultural heritage professionals from across the region are invited for a training workshop for post‐disaster community engagement.
“Strategies for Post-Disaster Community Engagement Workshop”
When homes are damaged and lives are upended, treasured keepsakes such as artwork, photos, personal papers, and other family heirlooms become more cherished. Even in the aftermath of a disaster, these treasures may be salvageable. Cultural institutions can provide important information to communities to preserve their possessions as they regain access to their homes and businesses. On May 31, the Smithsonian Institution’s experts will be onsite and online at The Durham Museum to provide a workshop exclusively for cultural heritage professionals. They will conduct a “train‐the-trainer”
session with the hope that institutions will host workshops in their own communities to most directly help those recovering from the recent historic flooding.
Friday, May 31 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. CST
The Durham Museum
Criss Conference Center,
801 S. 10th Street,
The workshop will be live-streamed through ZOOM video-conference software for those unable to attend onsite.
Presented by The Smithsonian Cultural Rescue Initiative, in collaboration with The Durham Museum in Omaha.
