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.”
