Storytelling and Museums

Storytelling and Museums

Authors: A. Federica Pesce, B. Joe Lambert, 2018

"Museums are often seen as places of learning associated with the presentation of facts. However, they are also places where curiosity is invoked and where wondrous things can be discovered.

Storytelling has the power to conjure up the magic of museums. In exploring the folklore surrounding an object, which in many cases has no factual basis, it helps to move away from notions of objective truth, and to explore the creative potential inherent in objects.

We will explore the issue of storytelling related to museums as a means of cultural heritage valorization and audience engagement."
