Stories are universal. More than ever before, we all read, watch and listen to stories, from books to Netflix, films to podcasts, stories are ubiquitous and a part of what make us human.

As museums face mounting challenges of relevancy, representation, funding, succession planning and more, stories can be a powerful tool in addressing these challenges. Integrating storytelling and stories in museum practice allows museums to look beyond the physical objects themselves in a collection to place a deeper value on what we collect, why we collect it and how we can explore the humanness around an object.

MAS’s 2020 conference Stuff to Stories 2.0 will explore ideas related to stories and storytelling in museums including:
• How storytelling can be used to create more inclusive museums
• How stories can create significance and meaning in collections and bring objects to life
• What is the role of physical artifacts and collections in an increasingly digital world?

Join this important conversation and submit a proposal to provide a presentation at the MAS conference.

Please submit using the online submission form by Friday, February 14, 2020. (https://form.jotform.com/93244715925260)
