This leaflet provides step-by-step instructions for planning exhibits, with the goal of engaging visitors in mind.

Alice Parman explains the need for exhibits to be meaningful and authentic in order to be transformative for visitors.

The instructions primarily focus on planning the exhibit’s content, beginning with the planning process of developing a storyline that promotes the organization’s mission and conveys take-home messages.
