Community Engagement & Impact
The Denver Art Museum recently launched a program called Art Lives Here, installing Native American objects in community centers, libraries and schools. Our understanding of each community’s prior knowledge and lived experiences with Native American objects varies across partners. In the session, we will present a case study that highlights the intersection of cultural art objects, community members, school systems, and museum educators. Bring your expertise and experience to discuss ways to evolve the program to be culturally responsive to communities we work with and support those communities in being responsive to the objects in their space.
