Interpreting Sports – Cultural Relevance Within the Games
Major Taylor Museum: Worcester, Massachusetts – May 15th, 2023
Sponsored by the Exhibits PAG at the New England Museum Association (NEMA)
Agenda and Registration here
Sports are central to the human experience and embedded into the fabric of Western culture. Sports history is more than a commentary on the games we play; it reflects the core of social identity. Sports topics provide museum professionals a lens for exploring a rich tapestry of widely-relatable, meaningful content while attracting new and engaging audiences. In this workshop, you will learn how to craft relevant, in-depth, and impactful sports exhibits and programs that move beyond commemoration, statistics, and nostalgia into the places and spaces that most affect your constituents.
