Bus departs America's Center at 10 a.m. and returns at 12:30 p.m. Ticket is required to board the bus.As the US grows increasingly ethnically and racially diverse, museums are challenged to consider more ways to integrate newcomer stories and culture to promote greater appreciation and cross-cultural understanding and to appeal to a wider audience. The art of storytelling can serve as a useful introduction, increasing knowledge and establishing relationships. Join immigrants and refugee representatives who will share their stories. They will be joined by local museum and education institution staff with stories and projects as well. Participate in round table discussions to explore and share ways to integrate such stories into your museum format.
