Are you heading to AAM’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans this year? Our friends at Museums and Race are organizing We All Get Free, a pre-meeting retreat on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 12:30 PM – 4:30 PM (CDT).
This is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues and build on themes aligned with MASS Action.
WE ALL GET FREE is a half-day, interdisciplinary retreat rooted in restorative justice, radical self-care, artistic expression, dialogic skill-building, and role-play. We will leave having addressed the following objectives:
Strengthen our network and make meaningful connections with professionals deeply committed to understanding and advancing diversity, equity, access, and inclusion work across the museum field.
Develop a shared understanding and critique of our museum practice, particularly the urgency and implications, when viewed through human rights and social justice frameworks.
Engage in dialogue and reflection about our roles, rights, and responsibilities–both personal and professional–using Restorative Justice models.
Conclude the retreat feeling energized, empowered with new resources, an accountability partner, and a plan for engaging within our community, particularly with colleagues across cultural, racial, and ideological spectra.
