Please join us for this special program that has been specifically designed for leaders, decision-makers, and interpretive staff in Blackstone Valley partner organizations. You need not have attended Session 1 to attend Session 2 and/or Session 3.
At the next workshop, we'll be discussing the craft of interpretation, developing an interpretive menu for your site, and matching sites and stories to valley-wide themes through collaborations.
