Desert Stories Project

Consultation with scholars and interpretive specialists to assess the museum's current interpretative direction and to explore how to incorporate more living history presentations.

The High Desert Museum is requesting a National Endowment for the Humanities Consultation Grant for the purpose of charting a new interpretive direction for the Museum’s cultural and historical interpretive programs. The Museum intends to contract with highly qualified consultants to assist the Museum to evaluate the effectiveness of its current cultural and historical interpretation in meeting its mission and to identify opportunities to enhance its current programs with particular emphasis on theater and living history. The Museum anticipates that the activities proposed in the Desert Stories project will provide the foundation for the development of a comprehensive master plan for its cultural and historical interpretive programs.
