Exhibits people have been giving generously of their time to advise about development of the ExhibitFiles site. Earlier this year, 17 of them spoke with interviewers from Randi Korn & Associates about the exhibit development process, the resources they draw on in their work, and what they’d find useful in this new site.
Most striking to me is their extraordinary generosity of spirit. Most said they would be willing to share descriptions, photos, evaluations, lessons learned, final budgets, and other material. The reasons for their willingness to share: a commitment to collegiality and collaboration and, to quote the report, “a desire to build a learning community and avoid reinventing the wheel.” We look forward to hearing from others about what they would find useful, and ways they hope to contribute.
