Jackson County and all of Oregon’s unique culture
surrounds us . . .
sustains us . . .
helps us grow.
It plays a crucial role in the lives of Oregonians, in our economy and our future.
It can be found in a local museum or historic cemetery, at a dance performance or creative writing workshop, at a Chatauqua lecture in a local library, and at one of Oregon’s 40,000 archeological sites.
It can be heard in tribal language and oral histories, in Shakespearean verse, in the music of a marching band or symphony.
It can be seen in thousands of galleries, in native basket weavings, and in public art installations throughout our state.
Our culture includes the arts, heritage, and humanities in all their variety.
Free Collections Prioritization Workshop – May 17, Medford
Feeling overwhelmed with your collection? Not sure what needs to happen next? Trying to define a project for a grant proposal?
Join Elizabeth Kallenbach, Anthropological Collections Manager at the Museum of Natural & Cultural History for a workshop on prioritizing collections.
This workshop will cover fundamentals of collection management responsibilities, outline priorities for approaching collections, and assist heritage organizations in identifying priorities for their collections. If your organization is overwhelmed with trying to do too much at once, this workshop will help you think through how to define specific projects and goals. This workshop includes examples from Oregon museums, hands-on activities, and you will walk away with materials to conduct a pilot project at your organization.
