    In these times of change, we reflect on the role that innovation has played throughout history. How have people in the past adapted to change? How does your site or institution share innovations of the past with visitors of the present? How have YOU had to create new ways to preserve and share history during these dynamic times? We welcome your proposals for workshops and sessions that address the theme of innovation in living history and museum interpretation. The conference committee is planning to have options for in-person and pre-recorded workshops and sessions.
