#MuseumWorkersSpeak is a collective of activist museum workers interrogating the relationship between museums’ stated commitments to social value and their internal labor practices and an action-oriented platform for social change at the intersection of labor, access, and inclusion.
Visitors of Color is a space for museum folks to be able to learn from the perspectives of marginalized people. We also see this as a form of activism--giving folks who may not feel safe or welcome in our institutions a little bit of agency in their relationships with museums. Although we’re called Visitors of Color, we wish to include voices from people of various marginalized communities--ability, gender, sexual orientation, class and so forth. Ultimately, we wish to allow space for the voices of marginalized people to be heard. Our passion is museums, our focus is people, our position is intersectionality.
