Panel: Strategies for Engaging and Representing: Latinos in Museums
April 21, 2022
In 2021, the American Alliance of Museums’ Latino Network published Strategies for Engaging and Representing Latinos in Museums as part of its mission to advocate for Latinx communities in the museum field. This free, digital resource—available in both English and Spanish—provides recommendations to help museum professionals navigate Latinx community engagement thoughtfully and effectively. The publication aims to support initiatives to increase Latinx representation among museum visitors, exhibitions, collections, staff, and boards, by providing guidance in a format that is readily accessible. In this session, the co-authors will offer an overview of the publication and share how they can be used by different institutions. Panelists include Adrian Aldaba, Manager of Education and Public Programs, Smithsonian National Museum of the American Latino, Washington, D.C.; Natalie Espinosa, Associate Registrar for Rights and Reproductions, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Diana Xochitl Munn, Director of Public Programs, Harvard Museums of Science and Culture, Cambridge, MA; and Margarita Sandino, Director of Education, Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, TN.
Moderated by ASU-LACMA Fellow, Deliasofia Zacarias.
