Hi Anthony,

Our museum is a member of the International Sites of Conscience. “International Coalition of Sites of Conscience  is a global network of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives that connect past struggles to today’s movements for human rights; the only worldwide network dedicated to transforming places that preserve the past into spaces that promote civic action. This conscious effort to connect past to present and memory to action is the hallmark of the Sites of Conscience movement. As a network of more than 250 Sites of Conscience in 65 countries, the Coalition engages tens of millions of people every year in using the lessons of history to take action on challenges to democracy and human rights today.”

 

We have a Gallery of Conscience that highlights international social justice issues, and engages with the public to think about and engage in the topics and civic actions, and also focuses programs and collaborations with various artists and constituent groups. You can take a look at our current exhibit and the projects in talks about in the gallery here http://media.newmexicoculture.org/press_releases.php?&action=detail&&releaseID=849 and here http://www.internationalfolkart.org/exhibition/3958/community-through-making-from-peru-to-new-mexico

 

 

Please let me know if you would more information from us on this work J

 

Best,

Dawn

Subject: [EXT] [talk] Looking for examples of museums and civic mission

 

Hello everyone,

I am working on writing a piece on museums and their civic mission, and am really looking for some interesting case studies on how museums work with their visitors/ audience/ community to:

  1. Build civic knowledge
  2. Foster a civic mindset
  3. Help cultivate a civic skillset
  4. Encourage civic action


Ideally I'd love to explore a broad diversity of institutional size, location, focus, mission, etc...

If your museum is doing great work in one or more of these areas, I'd love to chat with you.

Thank you,
