This month, along with our usual roundup of culture-sector news, we are focusing on stories related to Black lives matter and to the movement to fight back against anti-Black racism. Our feature story highlights a new Fellowship created in partnership between Lord Cultural Resources and the Association of African American Museums.
Gail Lord, President and Co-Founder of Lord Cultural Resources, delivered a keynote presented in association with Mumbai’s Nehru Science Centre. Her talk builds on this year’s International Museum Day theme of “Equality: Diversity and Inclusion.”
“I am honoured to be invited by the Nehru Science Centre to make a presentation about equity and inclusion in one of the most diverse countries in the world,” says Gail Lord. “Our work with India’s cultural institutions has been inspiring in fulfilling our company’s founding principle: that museums are for people.” Gail will addresses issues that impact the museum world today, such as migration, and international cooperation.
