Transcript

  • 1. Bergen Norway
  • 2. MY PRINCIPLES OF INCLUSION • • • • • Our patrimony belongs to everyone Museums hold objects in trust no matter what the law says about ownership. Our institutions should be welcoming both physically and philosophically to all. The non-visiting public is not waiting for an invitation. We must find out what they wish and provide it. The way the staff treat each other is apparent to the visitor and personal policy 40 years in the philosophy ofprofession must reflect the museum inclusion.
  • 3. There is no “magic bullet” to create safety, welcome and inclusion. You have to do everything you can think of all at the same time.
  • 4.  I believe -- Museums have only two core competencies (and even these they share with others). Museums are: •Public Civic Spaces that encourage strangers to peaceably congregate. •And they use, ◦Three dimensional evidence to create understanding/knowledge Elaine’s definition of Museums:

  • 8. THE FOLLOWING ARE JUST A FEW OF THE MANY THINGS THAT MATTER:  FREE IS BETTER THAN CHARGING  A MIXTURE OF SPACES FROM LARGE TO SMALL HELP  THE LOCATION AS NEUTRAL AS POSSIBLE  AVAILABLE BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT  LABELS THAT WORK FOR ALL READING LEVELS  A MIXTURE OF EXHIBITION DIVICES THAT APPEAL TO ALL LEARNING STYLES  ORIENTATION TO THE BUILDING AND TO THE SUBJECT  AN ATTITUDE OF WELCOME BY ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE • And THE VISION OF THE LEADER IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN I WOULD LIKE.
  • 9.  The classic museum structure that accords the curator special status and assumes that the functions of collections, curation, and research are superior to the needs of the public never results in thorough-going inclusion no matter how well intentioned that staff might be. The changing role of the curator
  • 10. • • • SHARED AUTHORITY: A NEW BLURRED LINE BETWEEN EXPERTS AND AMATAURS SHARED SERVICES BETWEEN MULTIPLE ORGANIZATIONS MAKES FOR A NEW DEFINITION OF COMMUNITY INTENTIONAL CIVILITY AND THE COMMON GOOD: THE ROLE OF MUSEUMS IN CREATING A NEW GENEROUS PEACIBLE LANDSCAPE. the new emerging issues
