I spent all weekend marinating in poetry at the Massachusetts Poetry Festival, which was incredible and thought-provoking as always. As an interdisciplinary enthusiast, I was enthralled with the ways I saw people talking about poetry and science, poetry and art, poetry and environmentalism, poetry and current events, poetry and civil activism. Coming back to my museum-persona, I was glad to see some of those same kinds of discussions are happening in this field as well, at AAM last week and continuing online and abroad.
Here are a few good reads from the last few days:
- We are not separate from politics, from Linda Norris at The Uncataloged Museum
- Exploring empathy from the folks at Museum Questions
- Participatory cultural heritage governance: a mapping project from the Museum of the Future
- #MuseumWorkersSpeak storify from AAM session
