Bold Stories: Curatorial Collaboration and Innovation

This exciting panel introduces five bold stories of innovation and courage from member institutions around the country. Attendees will: discover how a museum expanded a higher-education trend to extend college curricula and services into prisons and underserved communities; learn how a research-university museum and medical school collaborate on the important subject of global-health initiatives, specifically in Africa; hear how a museum of world cultures promoted greater understanding of the culture of drag-queens; and find out how a museum elevated campus dialogue about the #metoo movement through a series of sensitive conversations about sexual assault and harassment.
