Museum Reflections Conference Part 2: Diversity & Wellbeing
Juni 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmKostenlos
About this event
Join us for the second part in our digital conference series ‚Museum Reflections‘ hosted by Canterbury Museums and Galleries, as part of the Kent and Medway Museum Consortium. We will be exploring the role Museums play in helping individuals and communities feel included and connected, with a focus on connection as a core aspect of wellbeing.
Through sharing positive experiences we will explore how to create a safe space for discussion and learning. Using the protected characteristics in the equalities framework as a starting point, we will consider the narratives we create in our collections and programmes, the challenges of interpretation and of the labels within labels.
The conference will consist of a panel discussion with National museum sector professionals alongside presentations of case studies. There will also be opportunities for participation and networking through facilitated discussions. The list of speakers is as follows, with the full itinerary of the day to be shared in the coming weeks:
Abid Hussein – Director, Diversity at Arts Council England
Inbal Livine – Head of Collections and Engagement at the Powell-Cotton Museum
Case study: Empowering Staff to Take on Radical Change
Prof. Richard Sandell – Professor of Museum Studies and Director of the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries at the University of Leicester
