Museums Advancing Racial Justice

Science Museum of Minnesota
Dates: 4/15-17/2024

Museums are an important part of America’s cultural fabric because they are gathering places for conversation and exploration within our communities. As part of its Our Shared Future: Reckoning with our Racial Past initiative, the Smithsonian Institution has partnered with the Science Museum of Minnesota to host and facilitate Museums Advancing Racial Justice, a three-day convening for professionals in the museum and cultural institution community. To be held at the Science Museum of Minnesota in Saint Paul in April 2024, this action-oriented and collaborative event will empower participants to embark upon the initial steps of in-depth workshops centered on policy, programming, and community engagement.

If accepted, registration is free and each participant will receive a $1200 stipend to help cover travel expenses. Learn more at
