Live Panel – The Activist Museum

Thursday 15 October 2020

This panel brings together recipients of the Activist Museum Award . Speaking candidly about challenges they experienced in delivering activist projects through the Covid19 pandemic, panellists share a concern for democratic practice, opening up space for multiple voices and creating more equitable museums. Together, the projects encourage, inspire and support similarly activist museum work throughout the museum community.
