On May 18th, museums all around the world will come together to celebrate International Museum Day. This year, the theme is Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion.
IMD 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the different perspectives that make up the museum communities, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell.
Following the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdowns, IMD 2020 decided to adapt the format and focus on digital activities, to promote the values of IMD while ensuring the safety of the public and staff alike.
How can museums ensure diversity and inclusion in their digital activities, exploiting the potential of the web? A drafted list of possible activities that museums can develop to reach their public remotely is available.
