Museums Respond to the Demand for Social Justice: Are We Creating A Sustainable Mash-Up?

By Deborah Schwartz, Independent Consultant for Arts and Cultural Organizations. Some cultural institutions are setting their sights on democracy and social justice. What does it look like in our programming, our governance structures, and our community relationships? In this talk, Ms. Schwartz will look at some well received examples of exhibitions, oral history projects, and community driven programs that reflect the current push to bring the forces of equity from the street into the hallowed halls of our museums. As our democracy is threatened will we face censorship? What will happen if funders tire of the push for equity? Together, we will talk about the challenges ahead for museums who would like to create a consistent and sustainable engagement with the moral and ethical dilemmas of our time.

Venue: Dyckman Farmhouse Museum
