Bringing poetry to museum practice

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely seas and the sky, and all I ask is a tall ship and a start to steer her by....

I love the opportunities which present themselves for my creative life and my work life to collide.  Today I had the chance to present a webinar for my day job at the New England Museum Association, on bringing a poetry mindset to the world of writing exhibit labels (or using poetry to interact with your visitors through your exhibit labels).

“Hack This Label: National Poetry Month Edition” was a free webinar, the video and slides of which you can now access through NEMA here.

Or, you can watch or download them straight from this blog here:

And if you’re looking for other ways to think about creative writing in museum spaces, you can check out last year’s webinar, “Recharge, Reimagine, and Write.”

Jump into the conversation, the water's fine!
