Antiracist and Anticolonial Approach to Equity in Art Museums
Wednesday, June 7, 2023 | 7–8pm ET
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

Join us as we explore ways of advancing and reshaping the museum space and praxis toward racial literacy and radical equity and inclusion as it relates to cultural heritage informatics. We will critically examine (art) museum space and practices to unsettle racist and colonial design, looking to how museums can take the lead on antiracism and new ways of being.
