Long in the works, the agreement just signed between the Silver City Museum and the Western Institute for Lifelong Learning (WILL) commences a historic partnership. The agreement was signed by Museum Director Bart Roselli, WILL President Susan Beck and Silver City Town Manager Alex Brown. This partnership agreement was originally spearheaded by Roselli and Shelby Hallmark, past WILL president.
WILL and the museum will collaborate on educational and cultural programming aimed at enriching the Silver City community. The agreement outlines substantial support for both organizations’ missions, which includes shared programming, technical support, marketing, and financial commitments.
A collaboration in the past on Apache history between the Silver City Museum and WILL’s Lunch and Learn program proved a success and led to the partnership between the two organizations. As the strengths of the two entities are complementary and both have positive reputations in the community, it is hoped that this collaboration will have a real impact in bringing quality local historical and cultural programming to more people.
And, when safe again soon, opportunities for social convening for the Silver City community.
Joint programs will be advertised on the organization’s respective websites, social media, email, and through traditional media outlets. Members and the public are encouraged to stay tuned for upcoming joint events.
