|Slow Change: It's Not a Consolation Prize||
|Thursday, November 9, 2017||4:15 PM - 5:15 PM|
|Venue: Conference Center A|
We talk a lot about change in cultural institutions and tech—we’re disrupters and movement makers; we see where we need to go and want to lead our institutions there. In reality, though, change is slow, difficult, and sometimes indiscernible. Rather than an explosion, change may look like a slow-burning ember. This session will explore the realities of “slow burn” change. Moderators will bring perspectives from feminism and social-justice theory to situate museum change within the context of broader social progress.
We hope to talk about many aspects of slow change, including (thought not limited to):
The aim of this session is not to provide a panel of experts but a room for thinking and listening around this topic. We hope the session engages participants in critical thought about how change happens in our institutions and how we can recontextualize our own ideas about change.
