Arden Craft Shop Museum and Archives committee members Sadie Somerville and Barbara Macklem and our curator, Kelsey Ransick, attended the small museum conference along with more than 250 other museum professionals, board members, and volunteers from a wide variety of small museums.
Kelsey was a presenter for one of this year's sessions based on her newly published book Free and Easy Website Design for Museums and Historic Sites.
Barbara and Sadie attended numerous sessions on topics from building your own museum displays to grant writing workshop and collaborating with other small museums. It was inspiring and exciting to meet other small museum folks who have so many great ideas to share with us. We have plans for new programs to be held at the ACSM!
