Socially Distant Outdoor and Online Programming Initiative

The retention of three existing positions and the creation of a new project manager position to adapt three planned exhibitions for outdoor display on museum grounds and create related digital content.

In order to promote the advancement of humanities programming during the current crisis, the Putnam History Museum (PHM) will create several outdoor and online programming initiatives for museum visitors to enjoy and learn from at their own socially distant space, pace, and time. The PHM’s Socially Distant Outdoor and Online Programming Initiative will have four main components: 1) Creation of rotating outdoor exhibitions on the museum’s grounds 2) Digital content that will be accessible via the PHM’s website to complement these exhibitions (content will also be available via social media channels) 3) Outdoor public educational programming (when social distancing guidelines permit) 4) Educational components that will be utilized by teachers and students in the Fall of 2020
