Who’s up for a game of tag & tweet? The plan, still developing, is to roam the halls (and grounds?) of the Maryland Historical Society in search of cool and compelling objects. As defined by whatever stop-us-in-our-tracks. We’ll then gather round to investigate, take some pics, ask each other questions, throw out possible interpretive angles, and, finally, come up with some hashtags to use in tweeting about our find.
Does this sound “fun,” or at least like playing with purpose? If it does, you’re someone who loves helping objects “speak” — and the museum world needs you. For me, this feels like a form of Interpretation Improv, a way to hone our skills and stretch our imagination. I’m game, if anyone else is, ready to see what we can learn from one another.
