Your Story, Our Story with The Tenement Museum
Kathryn Llloyd, Director of Programs, The Tenement Museum
Whose stories belong in museums? How do we open our museums to visitors’ and students’ stories? In this session, we’ll look at the Tenement Museum’s Your Story, Our Story initiative, an online exhibit and digital storytelling project that explores American identity through the objects and traditions in our lives. We’ll explore stories from the collection, consider our own stories and identities, and learn how museums can use the Your Story, Our Story initiative to open their collections to new narratives and underrepresented perspectives.
