Helpful Tip: Before you get started, we recommend exploring examples of professionals’ grids by browsing other PAL sites. This will help you conceptualize your site and see how, even within a common structure like Mapping the Legacy, Professionals can customize their Mapping the Legacy according to their unique journey and story.
You, the performing arts professional, will want to articulate the moments, experiences, stories, events, productions, performances, you wish to memorialize, document, save and pass on.
Start by asking yourself two key questions:
- “ What do I want to save/to tell/to pass on?”
- “What have I got? What do I need to find?”
Click the headings below to explore how to prepare the questions posed above.
As Professionals get ready to work on their Mapping the Legacy, some prefer to write out the information about projects in one place either by hand or on a separate document. If this would be helpful for you, here is a template you can use to help organize this information. With this template you may print and handwrite your Legacy. Conversely you can type in information directly on Google Sheets. If you type, you can either copy and paste into your Mapping the Legacy or send the Google Sheet to us to input.
