Support Young Children, Grow Future Audiences

Recorded September 19, 2014

poster artRecorded as part of the 2014 AASLH Online Conference, Support Young Children, Grow Future Audiences discusses how children develop a sense of who they are at a very young age and begin to construct meaning regarding their heritage, families, and communities. Through collections, cultural artifacts, and everyday objects, museums are in unique position to provide important information that helps children gain insight about themselves and others. Consider the impact building relationships with young children and their families will have on the future of your institution.
