Elections, natural disasters, and other unexpected events, oh my! Museums face unique challenges when confronted with these events: collections care, visitors, limited resources to mitigate damage, and staff that already wear several different hats. Learn how the panelists responded to medical crises and violent intruders, post-election anxieties, fires, and floods to allow communication, healing, and resolution. Hear how the responses after the events changed policies and practices and how they have survived and thrived.
