Thursday, May 17, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
A workshop for professional and nonprofessional listeners in the history and culture fields (museum and library staff, oral historians, public historians, family historians, and genealogists) using tools from oral history and everyday life, to help you value the expertise that listening requires, and set boundaries for yourself as a listener. And refreshments! You will leave with some concrete strategies, some inspiration for exploring listening as a creative practice, and a new community of fellow listeners.
