The realities of racial and social inequity within museums and cultural institutions have long been discussed in the field. As an institution, the Crocker has made a commitment to examine these issues internally and in the Museum’s relationship to the community.

This discussion series seeks to open the conversation up to the wider public through attendee participation and features new panelists from the cultural sector each month. Join us for a dialogue that acknowledges exclusive practices in museums, and discusses solutions for furthering equal access, opportunity, and engagement with the arts for all. Please note, this program will be recorded for future distribution and will last approximately 75 minutes. Visit Museums are Not Neutral to learn more about "the myth of museum neutrality."

This event is part of our Equity in Museums series. Check out the other sessions to continue the conversation:
