This week, we feature Emily Dawson’s third and final blogpost exploring how exclusion is manifested and perpetuated in museums. After examining how different groups experience barriers to inclusion in her first post and exploring what an equity lens can add to museum practice in her second post, Emily’s third post reminds us that authentic inclusion will require […]

Most of us are well aware that there are a number of barriers to visiting and feeling welcomed in museums. Many of these barriers, however, might be invisible to us as they are deeply rooted in the Western, Euro-centric values and ways-of-being our museums are founded on. Moreover, as staff and community members, we might […]
