How do you incorporate original archival material into public programs and exhibitions that are inexpensive to produce, garner good press, and can be adapted to a variety of venues and audiences? Cowan shares ideas and tools for creatively incorporating photographs and moving images in non-digital environments (bars, galleries, theaters, etc.). He will take you through the steps of curating programs, building community partnerships, navigating organizational culture, exhibition logistics, program building, and funding sources. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about equipment and AV materials use and care through hands-on manipulation of media, including projectors, splicers, and other AV equipment. The lecture will apply to any archival materials, and exercises will focus on the details of original motion picture film (16mm and 35mm), glass lantern slides, and original photographs.

Pre-conference Course fees are in addition to conference fees. See the conference registration form for more information.
