#DearMuseums, Week One: “Uncertainty”

Welcome to the first week of #DearMuseums

This initiative seeks to document and share stories about how this global crisis is affecting people and their work as museum educators. Tune in to our blog, Facebook, and Twitter every Monday for selected submissions that capture the current climate through museum educator’s eyes. This week’s theme is “Uncertainty.” 

“You have broken my heart. No longer yours, X” over an image of a museum in a neoclassical architecture style with people standing and walking in the plaza in front of the building.

 Bolded black text over a bright blue background reads “AAAAH” as if a scream that runs over eleven lines. It ends saying “That’s it. That’s the submission.”

On a background like lined paper a student would have in a binder, a text in handwriting like script reads “Museum Education 2020: How Many Times Will I Cry In A Zoom Meeting?”

All entries this week were submitted anonymously. Visuals were created by Taylor Jeromos.

To submit your own responses or ideas (written, audio, visual submissions all encouraged) please email dearmuseums@museumedu.org.
