Emily Dickinson Museum Comprehensive Interpretive Planning

Planning for a new interpretive plan and public programs at the home of poet Emily Dickinson (1830–86).

The Emily Dickinson Museum (EDM) seeks funding of $63,025 through the NEH public humanities projects grant for historic places at the planning level. Having achieved major master plan goals in its 15-year history, the EDM is now focused on uniting its historic spaces, collections, and narratives to serve a growing contemporary audience. A new mission, completed infrastructure work, and past and impending restoration all highlight the stark need for an interpretive plan. The planning process will incorporate current scholarship to revise the EDM interpretation goals, themes, and methods. This grant will result in a written plan that considers multiple approaches and methods and takes an inclusive approach to audience engagement.
