The Museums & Race Gathering will offer AAM annual meeting attendees and those not registered for the meeting a comfortable and welcoming environment where participants – both people of color and white people – can engage in dialogue about race and museums as well as find space to strategize, recharge, and enter into self-reflection.
The Museums & Race Gathering at AAM is a direct result of the Museums & Race convening in Chicago where participants expressed interest in extending the exchange and dialogue to involve a broader group of museum workers and leaders. The Gathering will be an opportunity to explore the ways oppression, privilege, self-care for people of color, and intersectionality should be addressed in museums. For more on these concepts and how they are being used, please read the Museums & Race Statement of Purpose. It will feature a series of facilitated sessions (pre-registration is recommended), as well as a drop-in lounge area with resources and activities.
A partnership of: #MuseumsRespondToFerguson, #MuseumWorkersSpeak, Brown Girls Museum Blog, DivCom, The Empathetic Museum, The Incluseum, Museum Hue, and Visitors of Color
Supported by The Museum Group and AAM.
