BCMA Workshop – Are Museums Still Not Neutral? With Dr. Sharanjit Kaur Sandhra

June 23, 2023 / 12-1 PM (PST)

Watch the BCMA and Dr. Sharanjit Kaur Sandhra in a follow-up workshop to her webinar from three years ago, #MuseumsAreNotNeutral: White Supremacy in Museums and Calls To Immediate Action.

In this workshop, Sharn encourages participants to question if museums have learned from the calls to actions from Black Lives Matter resurgence movement in 2020, and where anti-racist change is still needed in museums today.

This workshop involved participation in breakout rooms (which has been edited out), as engaging with this work is everyone’s job (not just that of the presenter). The session ends with a discussion around some of the challenges staff in museums, heritage, and cultural organizations grapple with today in relation to anti-racism and ongoing calls to action and accountability.
