Diversity is an extraordinary force capable of making any community thrive and grow. Every team and group can enormously benefit and become a richer constellation of individuals thanks to people from diverse backgrounds. The art community is no exception. The Saint Louis Art Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, has announced a free virtual summit titled “Advancing Change: The Future of Museum Leadership.”
The upcoming event will shed light on the importance of diversity for cultural institutions and share an in-depth knowledge of creating effective fellowship programs for museums. To join the meeting, you need to register, which is completely free of charge and yet mandatory. The summit will take place online on May 6, 10 am – 3 pm CDT.
