The Museum Association of New York (MANY) has announced Museums Support Democracy, a series of six virtual programs created in partnership with Museum Hue and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).
Programs will explore Museums and Civil Rights, Visual and Performative Protest, Environmental Justice, Healing Historical Legacies, Ethical Collections, and Multiplying Interpretive Lenses. Each topic will be presented and discussed by museum professionals from a broad range of locations and disciplines featuring the work of culturally responsive museums.
These programs will bring together like-minded people who are separated by geography, discipline, and the size of their institutions but joined together by similar issues and passions. This is the second MANY virtual program series produced in partnership with Museum Hue.
In 2020, “Essential Work in the Cultural Field” a five-part virtual discussion series featured museums working with their communities to address urgent needs exacerbated by the national health and economic crisis. That series reached hundreds of museum professionals in 31 states.
Museums Support Democracy programs will be held January through March 2022, participation is free, advanced registration is required.
