Discussions about decolonization/decolonizing initiatives often rely on abstract, academic language that fails to connect with real world practices. In this session, Burke Museum and Museum of Us staff members will model a decolonized conversation, transparently sharing their experiences in a way that can be applied to many museums. Join us for a robust conversation about how our values impact the way we work, and how we navigate change in ways that build community rather than foster conflict.
