Conversations@Moore: Museums and Social Engagement

Conversations@Moore: Museums and Social Engagement
Wednesday, September 23rd 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Virtual Event via Zoom - link forthcoming


Join us on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 from 12–1 pm via Zoom for a virtual iteration of Conversations@Moore, featuring:

  • Valerie Gay, Deputy Director for Audience Engagement & Chief Experience Officer, Barnes Foundation
  • Dr. Tukufu Zuberi, Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations, and Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies, University of Pennsylvania
  • James Claiborne, Public Programming Manager, The African American Museum
  • Monique Scott (moderator), Faculty and Museum Studies Program Director, Bryn Mawr College

Link to RSVP forthcoming.

As museums explores a diversity of new tactics for social engagement, this event invites leaders in the field to explore their approaches to addressing pressing social and community concerns at their institutions. While panelists represent iconic Philadelphia museums of art, culture and science, participants will discuss more broadly the distinct and shared strategies of social activism and engagement they've explored in their careers.

This program was developed in partnership with Bryn Mawr College Museum Studies Program.

This free and virtual event is part of our ongoing Conversations@Moore public program series, organized by Moore College of Art & Design's Graduate Studies programs in Socially Engaged Art. For more information, visit
