Helping to take off those white goggles
That our museums and cultural institutions can be more diverse, and are currently focussed primarily on a white, highly educated audience, is nothing new. But how to change this? This certainly is more easily said than done. That’s why we at GRRR find it a meaningful matter to help Studio i: a platform for promoting inclusion in Dutch cultural institutions.
Studio i was created early 2018 as a collaboration between the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. GRRR is responsible for the website and online strategy. It aims to ensure that Dutch museums and cultural institutions become more accessible and attractive to everyone who is curious about art – regardless of cultural and social background, gender or disability. For example, the platform offers training to museum staff, tour guides and volunteers, and supports museums in developing inclusive programs and facilities, such as exhibitions for visitors with autism, a burn-out or low vision, as well as workshops and knowledge cafes about including word use.
