Museums face barriers as they consider how to _move forward _in the context of the dual pandemics of COVID and racism. Utilizing community-centered design strategies, museums can improve visitor satisfaction and operationalize commitments to inclusive practices. Join us for a practical and engaging experience as you deeply understand the barriers you’re facing, identify problems within your systems, explore root causes through empathy interviews, and reimagine the experiences, practices, and policies that will meaningfully engage visitors.
