A Workshop on Setting Strategy and Developing Content for Digital Interpretation

Are you wondering if you need an app? Do visitors expect Wi-Fi? What do people do with QR codes, anyway?

Join us for a day at Morris Arboretum to learn how Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and Morris Arboretum have researched these questions and developed audience-focused solutions. Sessions will focus on audience research, developing interpretation strategies, determining the right platform for the stories you t to tell, and creating content.

Planned for staff members of museums, gardens, nature centers, zoos, and other informal learning environments.

If you have a smartphone or tablet, please bring it with you.

Weather conditions may limit garden access to certain features even if the garden is open – please check the web site or call (215) 247-5777 for updates before visiting. Our visitors’ safety in the garden is our top priority. Therefore when inclement weather is predicted, we will make decisions about closing the garden accordingly.
