Toolbox Workshops

I coordinated Toolbox Workshops at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor ("Steel Museum") to provide local small organizations with insight into museum standards and field practice. I recruited speakers, wrote press releases, designed posters, and promoted the workshops on social media.

Representatives from 19 organizations and several members of the public attended workshops on marketing, genealogy, fundraising, digitization, Ohio Historical Markers, and the Ohio History Fund Grants Program.

Small groups allow attendees to ask more questions, discuss their organizations' challenges, and get personalized advice from museum professionals.
