Flipping the Narrative: Voices Unheard, Stories Untold

Monday, September 10, 2018 at 5:00 PM EST

Selected submissions will be notified via email by Wednesday, September 12, 2018 by 5:00 PM. 
Our friends at American Conservation Consortium have generously offered to cover the cost for SIX individuals (an $85 value each) to attend the 2018 GHHN Annual Conference on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at the Bear Mountain Inn and Conference Center. This is an exciting opportunity for an Emerging Museum Professional to attend the GHHN Annual Conference!

This year's Conference theme is "Flipping the Narrative: Voices Unheard, Stories Untold". The voices and stories of those who fall outside the narrative of 'dead rich white men' are still not often heard at historic sites. We think it's time for that to change. A move to interpret historic sites and the collections within from a different perspective ensures that a more holistic version of our site's story is presented to visitors and our communities.

The GHHN Annual Conference attracts approximately 200 museum professionals from throughout the Hudson Valley and Metropolitan region. The 2018 Annual Conference will debut a new and exciting conference format designed to help you engage at a more direct level with our presenters. We will once again feature office hours opportunities with grant funding organizations as well as a lite breakfast, networking luncheon, full-day exhibit hall, the Awards for Excellence ceremony, and more!​

This is a limited opportunity you do not want to miss!
