Museums as Agents of Change

April 27 @ 1:30 pm

Museums as Agents of Change

Date: April 27, 2022
Time: 1:30PM AST
Location: Online (Zoom)
Cost: Free

Museums everywhere have the potential to serve as agents of change—bringing people together, contributing to local communities, and changing people’s lives. So how can we, as individuals, rethink and expand the work of museums to live up to this potential? How can museums begin to enact change around the relevant issues in our local communities? How can we work together to build a stronger culture of equity and care within museums ? Questions like these are increasingly vital for all museum professionals to consider, no matter the size and type of the institution you work with. Through this presentation, Murawski discusses the work we need to do as museum professionals to tap into the energies within all of us to make change happen and proactively shape a new future.

Presenter Bio: After more than 20 years of work in education and museums, Mike is an outspoken advocate for change across the field of museums. He brings his personal core values of collaboration and care along with a deeper understanding of placed-based connections into the work that he leads within organizations, nonprofits, and communities. Mike is the author of Museums as Agents of Change: A Guide to Becoming a Changemaker (2021), author of the Substack publication Agents of Change, and co-producer of Museums Are Not Neutral, a global advocacy campaign calling for equity-based transformation across museums. In 2016, he co-founded Super Nature Adventures LLC, a place-based education and creative design agency that partners with parks, government agencies, schools, and nonprofits to expand learning in the outdoors and public spaces. When he’s not writing, drawing, or thinking about museums, you can find Mike on long trail runs in the forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

This is the first event in ANSM’s new speaker series as part of the new TRACK program.
