Join NYCMER’s Advocacy committee for an evening focused on unpacking the feelings of rejection, alienation, betrayal, anger, and grief that many museum professionals are feeling about the field. Our panelists - Mike Murawski, Julia Zubrovich and Nicole Daniels - will discuss their own experiences during COVID-19 by addressing the following questions:
A year into the pandemic, how are we feeling about our place in the museum world?
What do we miss and what have we been happy to leave behind?
How do we create a system of accountability in museums, and what changes need to happen in order for people to stay in the field?
All are welcome, including early-, mid-, and late-career professionals and community members. We encourage all attendees to share their own stories using our collective Jamboard. Feel free to use the questions above as a starting point to share your own stories.
Attendees will also have the chance to ask questions and respond via Q&A at the end of the session.
