Urgency of Empathy & Social Impact in Museums

381 views

Published on

Mike Murawski, Director of Education & Public Programs for the Portland Art Museum, and Founding Editor of ArtMuseumTeaching.com gave this presentation at MuseumNext New York on 15 November 2016.

In it Mike asked how we can start an empathy revolution in museums? How can we more fiercely recognize the meaningful work that museum professionals are doing to enact change around the relevant issues in our communities? How do we radically expand the work of museums in bringing people together and contributing to strong, resilient communities?

Questions like these seem increasingly vital for museums, especially in this time of polarized political discourse and highly-charged social debates.
