National ALHFAM Annual Meeting & Conference

2015 National ALHFAM Annual Meeting & Conference
In 2015, ALHFAM invites you to share and compare the variety of tools, both physical and interpretive, that you use to create dynamic Living History experiences. Whether you’re providing a hands-on opportunity in a garden, presenting a dramatic scenario, furnishing a period room, or interpreting a decisive battle, you must select the best tool for the job. That tool might be a long-handled hoe, an exciting script, a period print, an electronic map or a Windsor chair. Having the best tools on hand, and knowing how and when to use them, is the key to Living History success.
What tools do you rely on at your site or museum? How do you incorporate and reinforce skills training for your staff? Which methods work best to transmit skills to your visitors? Proposals for papers, presentations, posters and workshops that reveal the contents of your Living History toolbox are hereby solicited.
Proposals may address any facet of living history or museum work, but those with a special emphasis within the general conference theme will be given preference.
