Exploring Exhibit Design and Creation from a DIY Perspective

Registration is closed

This workshop is presented on behalf of Oregon Museums Association as part of the 2024 Oregon Heritage Conference.

Whether our organization is large or small, most of us know what it means to create programing and exhibits on a shoestring budget. Ever wonder how you can update or create new exhibits for hundreds, not thousands of dollars?

Attend this workshop and learn how to create modern, exciting exhibits with a tight budget in mind. Presenters will share tips and tricks on creating free-standing walls, utilizing touchscreens, and finding resources in unexpected places. You’ll also hear stories and examples of how a little creative thinking can expand your programming.

You will walk away from this workshop knowing how to build a few items (even if you don’t consider yourself to be “handy”), where to go for affordable display cases and tools, and with a newfound confidence that you can update your space, one exhibit at a time. None of the items discussed will require you to have a grant to implement some, if not all, of these ideas.

Presenters: Natascha Adams, Director of the Independence Heritage Museum, OMA Board Member, and Co-Founder of the Willamette Valley Museum Alliance

Jessica Hougen, Executive Director of the Benton County Historical Society, OMA Board Member, and Co-Founder of the Willamette Valley Museum Alliance

About the 2024 Oregon Heritage Conference: Make Space | April 17-20 | Forest Grove

The conference is a time for people who share a common passion for Oregon’s heritage and history to come together to share insights, understand connections, develop relationships, learn new ways,
reinforce the value of the work and leave energized to keep moving forward.

With all of the demands on people including information overload, home life, work tasks and all the things…the conference will be a place to Make Space. The way to move Oregon heritage work forward is
to Make Space: clear the clutter, set priorities, build relationships, and plan for the time it takes.
