WHO: Museum and history professionals, public historians, archivists, librarians, academia, educators, students.

MORE THAN JUST A WORKSHOP: Bootcamps will push you to see and do things differently. You will learn the basics of women’s history, how to talk about it, how to find it, and most importantly, how to create engaging and thoughtful experiences for your audiences. You will receive:

- Basic Training
- Survival Guides
- Lessons from the Frontline
- Exercises and Drills
- Mission Assignment

You will come out inspired and ready to protect the frontline of women’s history. Bootcamps are the first phase of March to the 19th, a five-year grassroots campaign in partnership with Humanities Tennessee, that will change the way we see and do women’s history in Tennessee.
