Equity in Museums

The realities of racial and social inequity within museums and cultural institutions have long been discussed in the field. As an institution, the Crocker has made a commitment to examine these issues internally and in the Museum’s relationship to the community. This discussion series seeks to open the conversation up to the wider public through attendee participation, featuring new panelists from the cultural sector each month. Join us for dialogue on acknowledging exclusive practices and realities in museums, and solutions for furthering equal access, opportunity, and engagement with the arts for all. Visit Museums are Not Neutral to learn more about “the myth of museum neutrality”.

This program will be recorded and available at a later day, and will last approximately 60 minutes.
