A Family, Two Forts, and a Massacre
Monday–Tuesday (overnight)

If you want to walk in the footsteps of history, then this is for you! Participants will leave Denver early on Monday, November 11, and travel across the plains three and a half hours to Bent’s Old Fort National Historic Site in La Junta, which is a completely reconstructed 1840s fur trade fort. At Bent’s Old Fort they will be given an exciting tour by a member of the park staff in first person, and then a program by Jake Koch on the way a peaceful trading post dramatically altered a people’s way of life. 

After their time at Bent’s Old Fort, participants will visit the often-ignored location of Bent’s New Fort, later known as Fort Wise, then Fort Lyon after the army took over. They will tour the site, which is only interpreted with waysides to learn about the site’s importance in the prelude to the Sand Creek Massacre before going on to Lamar where they will spend the night.

On the morning of November 12, participants will depart Lamar and arrive at Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site, where they will be given a meaningful guided tour by park staff. Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in an interactive discussion with interpretive staff from both sites discussing the different techniques used at each of the three locations, difficulties faced at each site, as well as the challenges in telling a larger story with three separate sites. Participants will then arrive back to Denver in time for the official start of the National Conference.

Volunteerism is alive and well—but undergoing significant transformation in many ways. Is your organization keeping up as attracting, retaining, and motivating volunteers become more challenging today than ever before? Explore contemporary topics in volunteer engagement, including utilizing social media recruitment techniques, reaching new audiences for volunteering, working toward a diverse and inclusive volunteer corps, and addressing rogue volunteers, as well as implementing new strategies for learning and training.

The day will include opportunities to apply topics discussed to your own site, to share ideas with other participants, and to look at practices of other organizations. Bring your tough volunteer challenges to this workshop and leave with an action plan you can confidently apply at your home site.

to Become More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Interpretive Organizations
Monday only

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is core to the mission of the National Association for Interpretation, our profession, and interpretive organizations, sites, and agencies. NAI aspires to develop, promote, and sustain an organizational culture that values, nurtures, and leverages diversity and inclusion in all activities. This includes leading by example and sharing successful models for the profession and leaders within interpretive organizations.

To be a successful organization in today’s diverse and changing environment, we need inclusive leaders who are energizing and motivating. Studies indicate that an organization that embraces and values diversity as an integral part of its goals can have a positive impact on individual productivity, organizational effectiveness, and sustained competitiveness. Inclusive leaders have the ability to create a workplace environment where each employee feels authentically valued, respected, and engaged in
achieving the organizational mission and vision.

Understanding and embracing DEI involves the critical examination of bias, privilege, and oppression and the many ways it plays out personally and professionally, visibly, and invisibly within our organizations. In this workshop facilitated by members of NAI’s DEI Committee, participants will examine their organizations, share experiences, learn best practices from each other, and develop model examples for the organization and profession.

Presenters: NAI DEI Committee Members: Brian Forist, Ph.D; Parker McMullen Bushman, Vice President of Programs, Interpretation & Exhibits, Butterfly Pavilion; Christina Cid, Director of Programs, High Desert Museum; Casey Bries, Education & Outreach Coordinator, City of Boulder; Kyrie Kellett, Principal, Mason Bee Interpretive Planning

Do You Have the Tools to Stay Relevant?
Monday onsite/Tuesday offsite

Helping visitors find personal relevancy with global climate change can be challenging. Our workshop is designed to help you meet this challenge through experiential, collaborative learning in a collegial environment. 

You will be provided with foundational climate science, opportunities to engage with scientists and peers, exposure to new technologies, and project time to start an action plan for integrating the latest science, emerging technologies, and innovative communication techniques into your interpretive efforts. You will learn about the latest in basic global climate science, using systems thinking as a context for understanding and interpreting climate change. We will introduce NASA visualization and citizen science tools, and share examples of climate interpretation drawn from the Earth to Sky partnership and participants’ own experiences.  

We will also visit the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Lab to learn about and discuss local impacts of global change with researchers studying climate and global dynamics, explore data visualization and virtual reality technologies, and engage with NCAR’s communication and education professionals. Together we will share and compare best practices and challenges in climate science communication and audience engagement. Weather permitting, we will also observe global-to-local impacts of a changing climate on the surrounding landscape.

Creating Sensory-Friendly Museum Opportunities
Tuesday

Our journey in researching, developing, and implementing sensory-friendly visits at Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park has resulted in a more welcoming and inclusive environment, more empowered allies to persons on the autism spectrum and/or with sensory processing differences, and lots of questions from interpreters in places where such programming does not exist. We are thrilled to be able to share our “lessons learned” and get people jump started by guiding them through the step-by -step planning process that has resulted in more engaged and excited staff and volunteers, and many repeat visits from families that include someone on the autism spectrum and/or with sensory processing differences. Active participants will leave with a well-developed proposal for implementation. What a way to get pumped up for the rest of the conference!

Through active engagement of program participants with simulations and the creation of hands-on products specific to their organizations, this capacity-building workshop will review best practices and offer practical step by step strategies for developing and implementing sensory-friendly visit opportunities in public places and institutions, based on firsthand experience of the presenters within their place of work.

Supervisory Boot Camp
Tuesday

Do you supervise people and wish you’d had more training before being thrown into the trenches? Are you thinking of becoming a supervisor but don’t know where to start your basic training? Well, then, this is the workshop for you. Join us for a one-day, down-and-dirty “boot camp” focusing on core skills necessary to lead and manage successful teams and yourself. Priority setting, goal management, communication styles, people management, self-care, personal and professional leadership, and more are necessary skills for positive, prosperous, and professional leaders.

Deep in the trenches we will first explore self, team, and the interrelationships that make for successful collaborative teams. Beyond theory, we’ll share our experiences and advice in an atmosphere designed to help you emerge with a personal plan of action as you share your skills and insights with other camp cadets. Think you’ve got what it takes?

Tuesday

Historic sites, museums, and parks across the country have struggled for decades to recruit and retain interpreters of color. This is true even for sites in majority-minority communities, or for sites that are geographically close to racially diverse urban areas. A homogeneous team of interpreters may make the site less welcoming to visitors of color, lead to less nuanced or authentic programming on slavery or US racial history, and in the case of living history sites can unintentionally erase the enslaved and/or free Black experience from the site’s narratives. But, why is it so challenging to recruit and retain interpreters and living historians of color?

This one-day workshop will help participants identify and breakdown the complexity of barriers that stop potential interpretive staff from applying and explore the problematic institutional patterns that wear interpreters of color down and cause them to leave the field. We will also discuss the history of slavery, the creation of uniquely American racial ideologies, and how cultural heritage sites can either perpetuate or breakdown a long history of racist ideas, policies and social norms through improved staff training, more adequate support and nuanced programming.

Open to all CIG instructors.

The Cutting Edge pre-conference workshop is an established tradition that provides interpretive trainers a venue for new ideas, best practices, methods, and techniques used in the Certified Interpretive Guide course. We will spend part of the day sharing our experiences and learning from one another with a facilitated idea-sharing/problem-solving session, so bring anything you want to share. This year you will also have an opportunity to spend half the day with Master Trainers to dive into new sections of the workbook. Whether you are a new trainer looking to help illuminate interpretation for students or an experienced trainer seeking fresh ways to enhance and brighten up your course design, we’ve got the sparks for you.

Presenters: Susan Schafer, Volunteer Services Program Manager, City of Fort Collins; Karin Hostetter, Owner/Trainer/Writer, Interp This; Andre Copeland, Interpretive Programs Manager, Chicago Zoological Society (Brookfield Zoo); Cindy Robinson, Park Interpreter, South Suburban Parks & Recreation–South Platte Park

Calling all historic house buffs!

Take an in-depth look into Coloradan community dynamics at the turn of the 20th century from the different perspectives of two restored historic homes. Begin with a guided tour of the Molly Brown House Museum to learn about an influential figure in Denver and how the house was saved from demolition in 1970 and restored into a museum. The Molly Brown House also features a new NEH grant–funded exhibit on mining history of Colorado in the home’s renovated basement.

Next, continue the journey with a guided tour of the Center for Colorado Women’s History at Byers-Evans House, part of History Colorado’s museum and the first state museum, now restored to the era of 1912–1924. Learn about the different women who inhabited the home since 1883, their impact on early Denver, and how their local stories connect to the broader stories of women’s history worldwide. Byers-Evans also features the “Women/Work/Justice” exhibit, which explores seven Colorado women and communities who not only challenged local and national workplace shifts from 1914 through 1980, but who also drove the change.
