A free community-building networking event to address diversity in museums
In a casual cafe setting, Brooklyn Museum, Museum Hack, ELNYA, Monica Montgomery and Drinking About Museums have come together to hold a meeting of the minds. With small break-out sessions, activities, and social games, we'll bring our communities closer, ask questions, and create opportunities.
In moments of political, social, and environmental stress, how can artists and administrators work towards taking more effective action on the most pressing issues in their communities? How might we strategically unite and collectively pool our skills, knowledge, and resources to promote change and resist compromising our values? And as emerging leaders in the field, how can we develop the leadership skills that will best facilitate and support work that moves the needle on our most critical challenges?
Part presentation, part workshop, part discussion, this event will center on hearing about effective strategies for social change in the arts from leaders in art and activism, as well as work towards developing participants’ approach to leading this work effectively as an artist or arts administrator.
