Light on the Stairs


Graduating during a pandemic is... intense, to say the least. While we work on navigating a time where museums are considered "nonessential", we're getting creative in our search to stay involved in the museum world. As recent museum studies graduates, we wanted to create a site that serves as a resource for museum professionals, established and emerging, to discuss with and learn from each other as we enter into a new social and professional era.

The topics discussed here are the same ones we've discussed among ourselves and in classrooms... and it's time they become part of the larger conversation about museums and their functionality. Join us for an awesome ride!



Our mission is to create connections between museums and their communities by leading discussion about (inter)national topics that impact museums' places in the world, especially regarding the societal climate in which museums operate and seek to navigate today. 


We aim to create an inclusive space where we can foster dialogue to help each other create new methodologies that best reflect society, so that museums can become microcosms of the world and yet challenge it to be better.

Meet the Team!
