Are you a researcher or evaluator in the arts, the museum field, science engagement, public media, or philanthropy? Are you passionate about equity, community, inclusion, and innovation in the cultural sector?
We always enjoy meeting new colleagues, whether or not we have a job opening at the moment.
The public will come in and they will not only be able to see the cultures of the ancient world, but also see how they fit into it. - Julian Siggers, @pennmuseum Congratulations! @SloverLinett #nametesting
@artlust @SloverLinett @AnandWrites Great points. It's striking when the challenges of the field - how museums are perceived or what they stand for - are so baked into the language like this, in that they become a metaphor for fixed states (or arbiters of "truth," as you say)
While not the author's point here, it's telling that the metaphor he uses about putting things "in the museum" in the last sentence is a stand in for basically committing it to a static, historical, dead space @SloverLinett
