The Changing Cultural Climate in Museums
February 8, 2022
The cultural climate in museums is currently facing a reckoning brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as racial unrest and protest. One of the voices calling for museums to address matters and movements pertinent to the moment is Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham. She will present the vision for Museum Hue, and the sector at large, as well as outline ways museums can help shape, define, and preserve today for the future. In this discussion, she will shed light on museum practices that boldly respond to the needs of their community and current issues through their narratives, programs, exhibitions and services. Stephanie Johnson-Cunningham has worked as a United Nations Human Rights Fellow, and in 2019, she received the American for the Arts, American Express Emerging Leader Award.
