Community and Connection Symposium
The Carleton Art History Undergraduate Society (CAHUS) would like to acknowledge that our work, as well this event will take place on the un-ceded and un-surrendered territory of the Algonquin nation.
The Carleton Art History Undergraduate Society invites you to attend “Community and Connection: Social responsibility in the heritage sector,” a symposium on the topic of accessibility and inclusion in museums and galleries.
Museums and galleries play a meaningful social role in portraying historical and cultural narratives. However, the stories told and voices heard have been, to a great degree, limited to the status quo. If we are to create an environment that welcomes the breadth and diversity of our communities, we must redefine how we think about historical narratives and who gets to create them. How do those working in the heritage sector approach questions of access, diversity, and inclusion in their work?
*While the discussion will be focused around disability and the arts, we will also be exploring and addressing the intersections between ableism, colonialism and race.*
The event will take place at Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) from 10:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, 30 March.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Light refreshments will be provided.
