Truth & Trust: Museums in a Polarized Society. As the 2016 election confirmed, America is a divided nation. Political discourse is now so polarized, many people have a hard time relating to their ideological opposites. They believe the other side lives in an alternate universe, another planet, a reality completely alien and incomprehensible. /// The political process has upended our sense of reality. Politics have always employed embellishment and truth-shading as means to ends. But this past election season mendacity has become the norm. We are living in what is being called a “post-truth society.” With so many lies, falsehoods, and obfuscations masquerading as truth, it is hard to determine fact from fiction. Reality has become relative. Will our society ever see eye-to-eye again? /// In this context, museums offer a compass. Museum spaces and collections help people find clarity. When people encounter a work of art, an antiquity, a scientific breakthrough, a historical event, a wonder of nature, or any of the other things museums offer, they experience authenticity. This is why museums are considered among the most trusted sources of information today. /// How should museums use that trust? Can they employ it to redefine reality for communities bewildered by political crosscurrents? Is it possible for museums to help unify and heal our polarized society? Restore civility to our civic dialogue? Help unstick the wheels of government? /// Museums have an extraordinary responsibility to leverage their social capital in service to a divided nation. If there was ever a time when museums could demonstrate their value as essential to their communities, the time is now. Add your voice to this vital and timely discussion at the 99th NEMA Conference.

National Association for Interpretation 2017 External Event Page
Spokane, Washington
Mark your calendars for NAI 2017, November 14-18 in Spokane, Washington! Immersed in rich cultural history and surrounding natural beauty, Spokane has long been a place where people gather to exchange goods and ideas. As Washington state’s second-largest destination (next to Seattle), the Spokane Valley is a hub for commerce, the environment and tourism. In its past and present, it is the largest trading hub for gathering tribes and businesses that include three states (Washington, Idaho, and Montana) and two Canadian provinces (British Columbia and Alberta). With a vibrant waterfall and river running through this urban metropolis, one can easily forget that they’re in the midst of a big city. Spokane offers the best of nature and heritage, proving to be an ideal location for this year’s national conference. The word “Spokane” comes from the local native community, meaning “Children of the Sun.” Join us in illuminating interpretation to our communities, ourselves, and future generations to come.
