Museums Creating Community Video Production
Partners: The Minnesota Association of Museums, Minnesota Productions of Twin Cities Public Television
Every county in Minnesota boasts at least one historical or cultural museum, often a distinct source of community pride. This video project documents and shares stories from many Minnesota museums, revealing how they inspire and foster community. The 30-minute, Emmy-nominated video aired on all six Minnesota PBS stations, on the web and at Minnesota museums. The video will also be available for use in classrooms, libraries and senior centers, and was shown at the American Association of Museums national conference in the spring of 2012.
