Picture of the productWhat Does Audience Inclusion Truly Mean?
Brian Mast
60 minutes
Date: June 11, 2019
Webinar Recording

One of the most important interpretive topics discussed among our peers is inclusion. We strive to be spaces where anyone can come to explore and learn about nature and history. In an effort to include these audiences in our interpretation it would help to have a basic understanding of Autism and Dementia along with the importance of including these audiences to reach your interpretive goal.

Brian Mast has been the Educator for the Black Belt Museum at the University of West Alabama for the past eight years. He has traveled all over the east coast giving living history programs, presented at conferences on interpretive topics such as digital engagement and programs for individuals with Autism.
