What compels visitors to explore an exhibition inside and out? How can museums make their exhibits clear and accessible? We can often find the answer in engaging, inclusive, and memorable panel and label text. This course will offer expert instruction on the techniques and best practices used by museum professionals to write text and labels for audiences of diverse ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
We will examine writing and formatting strategies to produce components such as:
- introductory and content panels
- tombstone labels
- wall quotes
- other descriptive text
Sign up for this course to gain confidence in writing text for visitors from an array of backgrounds and experiences. You’ll build a comprehensive foundation in exhibition writing skills by designing text and panels of your own.
