MAC Pandemic Support Series: Advocacy in the Caribbean

October 14, 2020 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm [AST -04:00]

As Caribbean economies struggle in the face of the COVID-19, regional museums have either lost funding or are at risk of losing, funding. 13% of museums, participating in the MAC survey in April, were at risk of being closed permanently. In the face of great socio-economic insecurity, Caribbean museums must advocate for their survival. This webinar provides an introduction to developing an advocacy campaign and examples of how Caribbean museums professionals advocate on behalf of their institutions.
