Museum folks are working from within their organizations to positively alter the historical spaces museums inhabit, from encouraging diverse hiring practices and more equitable pay, to creating more accessible programming and reaching out to work directly with communities. But how can we insure that we are in sustainable positions to continue this important work?
Join us at our September Craft (wine) & Conversation night to discuss how to keep up in a changing field. Through a roundtable-style discussion moderated by Emerging Museum Professional, Dia Bassett, guests will have the opportunity to share their views on this subject. We complied a list of articles to read to learn a little more about the subject matter, check them out below. Reading is encouraged but not required!
