At the end of 2020, 98 museums from across New York State were selected to participate in “Building Capacity, Creating Sustainability, Growing Accessibility,” an IMLS CARES Act grant project designed to help museums impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic to virtually share their collections that reveal cultural and racial diversity in their communities.
Beginning at noon on Friday, March 26th, Building Capacity participants Fabiola Cáceres and Melissa Kiewiet from the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, Jacqueline Madison from the North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association, Jenna Curran and Ian Seppala from the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, and Margie Wolf and Martine Campoli from the Westchester Children’s Museum are set to share their program plans, identify goals, and how they will use technology to virtually reach their audience.
Live programs are free, recordings will be available to MANY members after the program. Advance registration is required. For more information or to register, visit the Museum Association of New York website.
