VTS + NAEA BIPOC Space for Museum Educators (FREE)
Visual Thinking Strategies and the Museum Education Division of NAEA are joining forces to host a virtual affinity space for museum educators who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color) to discuss the unique challenges faced by BIPOC individuals in the field.
Who we are:
We are a group of museum educators who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color) working to create a safe and inclusive space with fellow BIPOC museum educator colleagues. As individuals in the United States and globally are challenged to face the historic and present realities of systemic racism and white supremacy, the work of BIPOC educators becomes increasingly important and challenging—both professionally and personally. We hope to create this space for us to network, support, and uplift one another.
Provide support, resources, and a space to share our work and personal journeys as we navigate forward. We plan to meet regularly to identify the needs of BIPOC museum educators who join this space and to grow and develop according to these needs and hopes.
Please RSVP only once to receive the Zoom link. If you have registered for sessions, you do not need to re-register. You will receive a reminder email with the Zoom link the day of or day before the session.
If you wish to be “unsubscribed” from the mailing list at any time, please email Tatiana Sanguinette at email@example.com with that intention and you will be removed. Email frequency is at most three times monthly.
