Webinar with Sterlin Harjo - Co-Creator and Showrunner of FX's Critical Acclaimed TV Series Reservation Dogs
Museums are not neutral. Our sector enjoys a level of public trust and respect that few other institutions even come close to matching. It is critical that we help our communities understand the challenges we are facing and bring people together to take collective action in this climate crisis.
In this episode, Dr. Smiles discusses the legacies of settler colonialism in environmentalism and climate action, as well as the potential role of the cultural sector in reimagining stewardship, centering Indigenous ways of knowing, and creative ways of relating with living environments, including more-than-human kin, in an era of climate crisis.
Not just for museums
We embrace a broad and inclusive definition of museums as institutions created in the public interest that engage visitors, foster deeper understanding and promote the enjoyment and sharing of authentic cultural and natural heritage.
Responding to the immediate needs identified by racially marginalized museum workers, the IBPOC Network hopes to provide targeted support for IBPOC and equity-seeking members of our community through workshops, webinars, networking, and resource development.
