Acorn Heritage Services
Nantucket, MA 02554
Acorn Heritage Services is proud to be able to provide educational programs to our clients. Educational programming can take a variety of types and methods. We will work with the client to create an effective and fun educational methodology for adults and children alike. Although our primary educational programming is geared towards adult, architecture and heritage based types of goals, we can work with a variety of source material and audiences.
In Person Programs
We can provide a vareity of in person programs. These programs are generally walking tours or step on board (bus based) programs. We can be contracted to provide these programs personally or to develop the tours and programs to be hosted by another speaker. We can also be engaged to provide specific lecture topics on a wide variety of topics (including architecture, design, roadside resources, research, etc.) Furthermore, we will work with clients to understand educational outcomes to develop school programs in local and small museums.
We can provide services such as walking tour brochures and booklets. Utilizing our wide design experience, we will create informative and innovative tour programs which your users will enjoy and will keep for future use. The sky's the limit for the types of programs that can use these types of services, but commonly, historic districts will request walking tours that can be distributed at the local chamber of commerce.
Also, we can help develop plaque programs for historic houses. We can design and find a printer/painter for these types of house markers. The usefulness of these signs cannot be overstated as a wayfinder and source of price. We can also develop wayside markers which provide interesting information along existing walking paths, trails, and roads.
Online & Audio/Video Programs
Using our technology resources, AHS can develop a range of educational programs to be utlized through modern technologies. This may include DVD's for distribution, Podcasts, digital video, or web sites. There are no limitations to the types of digital media we can produce for your historic site or museum. Contact us for more information on how we can tailor our abilities to your needs.
