To that end, the collective Museum Workers Speak has put together the Museum Workers Relief Fund for the mutual aid of museum workers in need. In the words of their website:
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.
If you would like to contribute (as I already have) to the Museum Workers Relief Fund, you can follow this link to do so. Also check out the new Museum Workers Speak Slack channel to chat, organize, send job leads, etc.
As an added incentive, for every ExhibiTricks reader who contributes at least $10.00 by or before April 15, 2021, I will set up a one-hour Zoom call (at a mutually convenient time) to discuss anything you like.
Think of it as a super-cheap consulting call with me to talk about museum exhibit possibilities, museum careers, or whatever else springs to your mind.
So click on over to the Museum Workers Relief Fund page NOW, make your contribution, and then email me your receipt so we can compare calendars for that Zoom call!
