Join us for this FREE professional development opportunity. Cultural Connections, NAME, and the Presidio Trust are jointly hosting a live webinar Watch-and-Talk event from the American Alliance of Museums, Designing for Outrage: Inviting Disruption into Exhibitions. The FREE program includes pre-webinar networking and opening remarks, and post-webinar facilitated discussion and curator-led tour of the special exhibition Exclusion: The Presidio's Role in World War II Japanese American Incarceration.
Violent murders, rampant xenophobia, homophobia, racism, and gender and economic injustices vibrate around us. Is there a way that exhibitions can create spaces that authentically address these issues in all of their moral messiness without rushing to feel-good emotions, harmony, or even empathy? Can there be space for outrage? Designing for Outrage will explore four exhibitions that aim to surprise, puzzle, delight, startle, and even evoke outrage. Using marginal, subversive, or fragmented narratives, they invite visitors to explore a full range of issues and emotions. Find out how you can design for outrage in your institution.
Lunch is available for purchase in the adjacent restaurant, Arguello. The FREE PresidiGo Downtown shuttle can provide transportation to/from the Embarcadero.
