Museums provide a platform. As trusted public institutions, museums are in a position to amplify the voices of their community. By giving voice to and centering diverse community perspectives, museums can see themselves as conduits of ideas rather than the source. Representation of the community leads to increased community relevance.
Reconsidering Museums has resources to help your museum learn more about representing your community to increase relevance and take action to amplify the voices in your community. Find the toolkit here.
