Last week, Aletheia and I were in Minneapolis to work on a project we are developing (with a handful of other folks) at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (more on that in the near future). While in town, we got to witness the arrival of the 2015 Museum Network Conference attendees, which included our friend and collaborator nikhil trivedi. This was our first time meeting in person after working together for nearly a year (you can read his contributions to the Incluseum blog here, here, and here)! On Wednesday night, nikhil delivered an ignite talk entitled: Towards and Anti-Oppression Museum Manifesto. I am impressed by the amount of powerful content he was able to pack into five minutes. We are excited to share the video of his talk below. You can also access the text and slides here. -Rose
