Recover. Reimagine. Revive. What does ReMuseum mean to you? Join this virtual conversation to delve deeply into the challenges that the museum field is currently facing and how our field can move forward. Come ready to dialogue!
How can we in museums approach the need for greater diversity and equality using empathy as our lens? We explore the philosophy and tools developed by The Empathetic Museum for confronting histories of colonialism, racism, and privilege by developing the practice of institutional empathy (i.e., the intention of the museum to be, and be perceived as, deeply connected with its community).
