The Dreamspace Project: Anti-Racist Pedagogy for Museum Education Part 1

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will explore the ways in which the art museum perpetuates neocolonialism and white supremacy, and how that affects the visitor's experience, creating both visible and invisible barriers to learning and engagement. Using exercises from The Dreamspace Workbook, we will guide participants on a tour through the galleries of the Detroit Institute of Arts. Along with access to a digital copy of the workbook, participants will leave with tools to address issues of racism prevalent in museums.
