Let’s Talk – Curatorial and Workforce Diversity ProgrammesOnline Webinar
How can you diversify workforces and expand the curatorial voices in your organisations? Learn from examples across the UK in our free online session, LET’S TALK: Curatorial and Workforce Diversity Programmes.
We will be hearing from organisations across the UK about their experiences with projects and programming aimed at diversifying the sector by looking at the workforce and the curatorial voices that shape our interpretations. Learn how their work has impacted schools and young people and how it has helped the museums to better connect with their communities.
