Critical Conversations Virtual Program
September 2, 2020, 12:00-1:00 pm EST
Critical Conversations is a quarterly lecture series hosted by the Decorative Arts Trust. In order to foster meaningful change, we are bringing leaders in the field together to discuss urgent issues facing our collective community and society.
This conversation will address how museums are changing and will change their collection and interpretation practices as a response to Black Lives Matter and other civil rights movements for people of color. Additional information including optional readings will be provided with registration.
