International Museum Day
Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion
To celebrate International Museum Day (IMD) 2020, we have put together a collection of articles centered around the Day’s theme ‘Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion’.
The collection explores the broad yet poignant aspects of the terms Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and how this relates to museum environments and professional practice.
We hope you enjoy IMD and this collection, which aims to both celebrate the current research on overcoming bias in museum communities and inspire further study on how we can strive for equality in our museum spaces and beyond.
The articles below are free to access through this page until 30th June 2020.
