Museums and International Understanding Peer Group Meeting

Where: Ukrainian Museum
222 E 6th St
NY, NY

When:4:15 pm - 5:00 pm

Workshop Organizer: Museums and International Understanding Peer Group

RSVP: Rebecca Armstrong- rebeccalynnearmstrong@gmail.com

 

Focus: We will be focusing on applying what we discussed at November’s meeting to our site visit to the Ukrainian Museum- what does “international understanding” mean for museums specifically, what is necessary to promote these goals within the museum’s programs and exhibitions, and does the museum meet these goals/how so. There are a few beautiful exhibitions currently up that will help spark our discussions!
