WMA's COVID-19 Artices


Museums around the globe have been greatly impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and a national reckoning around race. While many have been given the opportunity to reopen with appropriate safety restrictions in place, behind the scenes day-to-day operations remain in flux and institutional practices and policies are being dismantled, reimagined, and eliminated.

Here, you'll find a list of resources to aid you in your internal discussions, as well as workflow recommendations that can be adapted to fit your specific needs.
