Using a case study from the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center in Shawnee, this live webinar will highlight the importance of emergency planning, setting salvage priorities, and training staff ahead of disasters. Participants will also receive a curated list of resources to assist in their emergency planning.
In March 2014, the 10,000-square-foot Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center was flooded. The organization reopened – even better – in late 2017. R. Blake Norton, MA, is curator of the Heritage Center and will share their story of hope and inspiration after a disaster.
Rebecca Elder, an experienced cultural heritage preservation consultant, will guide the webinar and provide resources on floods and wet salvage for museums.
The webinar will take place on January 11, 2023 10:00am-11:30am using the Zoom platform. This webinar is provided at no cost, but you must register in advance to receive webinar access. Register here. Note: This is a live webinar and will not be recorded.
