Reculturing Museums: Working toward Diversity in Informal Settings
Ash, Doris; Lombana, Judith
Journal of Museum Education, v38 n1 p69-80 Mar 2013
In this article we argue for "reculturing" museums, starting with the ways that museum educators are professionally developed, focusing, in particular, on working with diverse visitors. By "reculturing" we mean shifting the core values and practices of a museum community, starting with its education practices. The aim of establishing museum educator communities of practice is consistent with museums' longstanding goal to work with the public to increase accessibility, especially for marginalized populations.
