Dear friends + colleagues,
I would like to invite you to join me in participating in this workshop specifically looking at racism in museum education. I think it will be a great opportunity for us to have an open and frank discussion as well as reflect on our own teaching philosophy and practice. Hope to see you there!
Join Marit Dewhurst and Keonna Hendrick for a FREE two-part workshop about racism in museum education on August 11th & 18th! This is an opportunity to have frank and productive conversation and kick-start anti-racist work in our practice.
Register online at http://bit.ly/racisminmuseumed by August 9th! *Space is limited.
You must commit to both sessions: Tuesday, August 11th 2-5:30 and Tuesday, August 18th 2-5:30
Racism shapes how we view, discuss, create, and engage multiple audiences in museum education. Tasked with connecting learners to the arts, museum educators could play a pivotal role in dismantling systems of oppression that operate within our society. To do so requires us to be brave in our work--brave in how we stand up for ourselves and each other, brave in how we identify and check our own biases, and brave in how we reframe our relationships to our colleagues, audiences, and institutions. This series of workshops will provide museum educators with the opportunity to talk both within and across racial identity groups about racism in museum education in hopes of creating braver spaces for our work.
