Every Minute and Every Dollar is a Vote

The ways we spend our time and money indicate our priorities.

One of the strengths of museum workers is our capacity to share information and resources as well as sharing of ourselves to help others.  With that in mind, I'm going to offer one suggestion for where to spend your money and another suggestion for where to spend your time.

A Place to Spend Your Money

Please consider contributing to the Museum Workers Relief Fund to help our colleagues in need.  From their GoFundMe page:

"It has become clear to us that when our institutions will not stand in solidarity with us, we must stand in solidarity with one another."

A Place to Spend Your Time

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I've started a Museum FAQ video project to share ideas with museum workers through a series of YouTube conversations with museum thinkers from around the world.  Please check out the Museum FAQ YouTube page and let me know your suggestions for future Museum FAQ topics.
