Calisphere Exhibition Proposal

Staffing
Tell us about the people who will be involved with the development of your exhibition.
Project owner *
The project owner serves as the main point of contact for CDL. The project owner must be a staff representative of a Calisphere contributing institution. The project owner will: a) provide any needed project management to curators and others to ensure the development of the exhibition proceeds smoothly; b) ensure that exhibition content is well researched and accurate, and; c) serve as a long-term point of contact for CDL and a steward of the exhibition, for example by responding to user questions that may arise in the future and/or remaining vigilant about any removed objects that may affect the exhibition.

Curator name(s) *
One or more curators will author the exhibition, meaning they will select and order the items, conduct research as needed, write interpretive copy, and be credited in the exhibition byline. The curator(s) should have expertise in the subject/items described, demonstrated research experience, and/or the appropriate oversight from a recognized “expert” (e.g. a student under the tutelage of a faculty or staff advisor) -- as vetted and approved by the Project Owner.
Your answer
Exhibition review committee names (strongly recommended)
Each Calisphere exhibition undergoes review for accuracy and engagement by a review committee assembled for that particular exhibition. CDL will work together with you and the Calisphere Exhibitions Advisory Board to identify individuals for this committee. If you already have some ideas of individuals who could serve on this committee, please indicate them here.
Your answer
Exhibition Content
Tell us a little bit about what the exhibition will be about and what it will add to Calisphere.
Working title of exhibition *
Your answer
Tell us the story of this exhibition. *
A great exhibition tells a story: it takes the reader on a journey to understand or more fully explore a particular topic, person, time period, or idea. It may say something new or add a different dimension to what the reader thought they knew. Take a stab at telling us, in a couple paragraphs, the story of your exhibition. (Please provide some background on the topic, if necessary.)
Your answer
How will the items in the exhibition help you tell that story? *
Your answer
Why is the story important to share on Calisphere? *
Your answer
What Calisphere items do you anticipate including in this exhibition? *
This could be a draft list of URLs or a general scope, if specific items have not yet been identified -- for example, "photographs of LGBT parades held by the GLBT Historical Society and the San Jose Public Library." Please note that exhibitions can only contain items that currently appear on Calisphere. (You can propose an exhibition in advance of contributing the items, but we will not be able to publish that exhibition until the items are live on the site.)
Your answer
Do you plan to include objects contributed to Calisphere by multiple institutions? *
If so, which objects?
This can be a list of specific items and their contributors, or just some general information about the potential objects you plan to include, their owning institutions, and a sense of scope (e.g. "most of the exhibition items will come from our institution, but we plan to augment those with a few items on similar topics from institutions X, Y, Z, which have collections related to this topic on Calisphere.")
Your answer
Anything else you want to tell us about your exhibition idea?
