Museums typically use the language of wonder and curiosity to describe their purpose, sometimes to the exclusion of formal education. But are learning and meaning-making actually exclusive of one another? Are we missing opportunities to contribute to, and benefit from, critical conversations about the educational needs of the communities we belong to? Join this Westinar that crosses boundaries of interpretation, leadership, and community engagement, as presenters from museums, K-12 schools, business, funders, and public libraries dive into a dialogue about who and what we are here for. #diggingdeeper
