AAAM Virtual Conference: Open Plenary with Izetta Autumn Mobley

August 5, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

And Some of Us Are Brave: Ethics, Praxis, & Care in the Trauma-Informed Museum

This 90-minute dialogue will explore how trauma impacts how we engage visitors, staff, and our communities. In the wake of a spring and summer of illness, loss, precarity, and violence museums are charged with navigating a twenty-first century landscape that demands empathy, ethics, and a praxis of care in how we do our work.

How can we learn from the practice of trauma-informed care?
How can we incorporate an ethic of radical and ethical care into our museum and cultural work – and why does doing so matter?
What models of liberatory Black cultural engagement can guide us as we forge forward?
