Join our online event to discuss being an activist museum worker
29th July, 1.30 – 3.00pm BST
Free, on Zoom
Join the Activist Museum Award winners for an online discussion exploring our experiences of being activists working in museums. What challenges arise, what changes have you made happen, and what tensions arise in facing intersecting issues? Often we are fighting the same battles under different banners, so how can activists work together on common aims?
Kicking off the discussion will be:
- Carrie Supple from the Journey to Justice travelling civil rights exhibition
- Michelle McGrath from Museum as Muck
- Bridget McKenzie from Climate Museum UK
Some background to this event
The International Slavery Museum, Museum as Muck and Climate Museum UK were recipients of the first Activist Museum Awards from University of Leicester (with Robert Janes). Covid-19 has changed our plans for meeting in person as part of this, so we as awardees want to invite anyone interested to join in with this discussion online. You might be a secret activist in a traditional museum, a proud activist in a radical museum, or somewhere in between, or not in a museum role. All are welcome.
Please register in advance.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
