Story of Texas Workshop--Content from September 8, 2014 Event


Story of Texas Workshop: Telling your story in bigger and better ways

The Bullock Texas State History Museum interprets the continually unfolding "Story of Texas” to the broadest possible audience. The Texas Historical Commission (THC) saves the real places that tell the real stories of Texas. Join us for a one-day workshop exploring our shared mission to improve the way we tell our story.

On September 8, 2014, the Bullock Museum and the THC will host a day of programming highlighting a variety of ways that Texans can tell their stories. Session speakers will discuss the importance of choosing words, pictures, and programs that engage your audience. This information will help improve the way we educate, influence, and persuade.
