Session: Small Steps Towards Significant Change: Institutional Collaborations and Conversations

Sometimes our institutions and resources don’t allow for, or encourage, sweeping change, even when it is needed. But institutional collaborations and the platform of public programs can provide an avenue for colleagues to initiate a conversation, share research and concerns, and in the process make space for new voices and current issues. Practitioners from a range of international institutions discuss their small steps that have led to significant, lasting change and new directions for their institutions, redefining what radicality can look like.
