Maine State Museum Listening Tour on Zoom

Local community members are invited to be part of Maine State Museum’s Zoom Listening Tour, in partnership with the Rockland Public Library, on Tuesday, March 22, at 6:30 pm. The Maine State Museum seeks community input to find the stories and broader themes that resonate with and reflect the many voices, interests, and identities of the people of Maine. They want to know what people living in Maine today think is important. Responses will inform the museum’s ongoing work, with a particular focus on the development of the new exhibit that will welcome all visitors as they step inside the museum when it reopens. The Maine State Museum is currently undergoing a major renovation project, which will likely mean the museum will not reopen until 2024.

The evening will be a one-and-a-half hour conversation, with closed captioning available, and will have a facilitator to help guide the discussion and at least one museum employee to listen. To attend, participants must register in advance at https://mainestate.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMtcuCsrjMsE9e2MSFqMpeUtt6QUiewYQJG

For more information, contact Patty King at the Rockland Public Library at 594-0310.
