A Virtual Exploration of the High Desert: Sustaining Humanities and Connecting Community

Retention of seven staff members to develop virtual tours and programming based on the museum’s collections.

This project will enable the High Desert Museum’s core humanities team to create new virtual programming that will expand public access to the Museum’s significant humanities resources, expertise and collection and deepen understanding of the diverse experiences and perspectives that make up the history of the High Desert region with a particular focus on Indigenous cultures and perspectives. Key outputs will use three areas of our mission, exhibitions and community programs, collections, and K-12 education programs, to establish multiple avenues for engaging broad audiences in important humanities themes and content. Ultimately, these online experiences and resources will continue the Museum’s mission-based work during the current crisis, advance long-term institutional goals, significantly expand the Museum’s impact, and reach new audiences across the High Desert and beyond.
