How are museums and cultural organizations endeavoring to engage their communities on issues of equity and sustainability? Are our institutions viewed with greater value when we take stands on substantial and timely issues – and what risks do we face? What impact can it have on the organization, our audiences, and the issues we seek to address? Hear how Monterey Bay Aquarium, Oakland Museum of California, The Lab, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the California Academy of Sciences have tackled these and related questions.
Please bring burning questions and thoughts to stoke the fire of a group discussion!
Following the program, toast to the close of 2014 and continue the conversation over refreshments.
