Virtual Summit on Diversity
Join arts professionals from around the country to explore best practices for nurturing diverse talent within museums and cultural institutions. Advancing Change: The Future of Museum Leadership is a free virtual summit that presents information and lessons learned over 30 years of offering the Romare Bearden Graduate Museum Fellowship at the Saint Louis Art Museum. This summit will provide resources for museums seeking to create fellowship programs that cultivate future leaders from diverse backgrounds in curatorial practice, education and interpretation, audience development, and other museum professions. It will also provide an opportunity for young professionals seeking museum careers to hear from former Bearden Fellows about their experience developing careers in the field. This is a free event.
