Exploring Social Justice on a Limited Budget

May 13, 2021, 10:00 a.m. (CT)
This webinar will be framed through a social justice lens and will lay the groundwork for an understanding of what social justice and equity are, why they are important to museums, and how they relate to conversations around racism and museum sustainability. It will explore how museums can recontextualize exhibits to open discussions around social justice and will provide examples of museums that have done this successfully. The examples will be affordable solutions with high impact and low cost, acknowledging that many museums do not have the resources to reinstall their exhibits at the moment, but there are ways they can address social justice within the context of the exhibits they already have on view.
