Interpretation has both the opportunity and a responsibility to be more inclusive of all communities and to question dominant and privileged cultural perspectives. During the workshop, attendees will be introduced to the concept of unconscious bias, including in the development of interpretive programs. Through a series of interactive virtual session, participants will examine bias and systems of oppression as it pertains to interpretive planning and programming. Participants will reflect on individual and organizational practices and develop strategies for creating engaging and meaningful programming for diverse audiences.
