What would it look like for archives, libraries, and museums to value their communities over their collections? How can these institutions more fully embrace practices of listening and relationship building, while interrupting traditional practices rooted in colonialism?

Join Clinton Fluker, PhD, senior director of culture, community and partner engagement for the Michael C. Carlos Museum and Emory Libraries, and Mike Murawski, consultant and author of Museums as Agents of Change, as they discuss the role of libraries and museums within their wider communities, how to begin reshaping what institutions value, and what it means to have a human-centered approach.
