At this year's annual meeting, we had the pleasure of hosting our Keynote Speaker, Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham. As the Co-founder and Creative Director of Museum Hue, an organization dedicated to the advancement of people of color through the arts, Stephanie utilizes museums and other cultural entities as a medium for discussions on power and privilege as it relates to the arts sector. Her keynote speech focuses on how her infatuation and frustration with the museum field inspired the formation of Museum Hue and how it continues to motivate her to work to increase dialogue around museum representation and access. The livestream of her Keynote Address is below; her slideshow can be found here.
