Concept development, design charrette facilitation, and prototyping for a multi-player digital interactive that explores the history behind the 19th Amendment and subsequent legal landmarks in the quest for equal rights for ALL women in the United States. Special attention paid to the tension between which women attained their rights and when; as well as the ongoing struggle for women's rights (ex. access to healthcare & body autonomy).

American Alliance of Museums Annual Conference
As part of the Museums and Race Steering Committee, oversaw the creation of the Museums and Race Transformation and Justice Lounge for the American Alliance of Museums' Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ. Envisioned as a purposefully-designed space to support dialog around issues of inclusion and representation in the industry, encourage reflection on personal museum practice, and create space for weary conference attendees to recharge and reconnect with one another. The lounge included a large welcome sign reminding visitors of the native lands on which the lounge stood, two participatory art projects hosted by local indigenous artists, dialog tables hosted by museum colleagues doing this work in their institutions, and a set of relaxation pods for attendees to grab a few minutes to recharge.
Professional Development Workshops: Challenging issues of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
Delaware Art Museum
With The Empathetic Museum, developed a pair of professional development workshops for the Delaware Art Museum in advance of exhibitions and programming dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Wilmington uprising and subsequent National Guard occupation of the city. The museum's recent strategic plan calls for expanded efforts to engage the broader Wilmington community and address issues of diversity and representation within the museum. This workshop series worked with the staff and gallery guides to rethink the way in which bias and cultural norms impact policies and best practices within museums; and identifying ways in which individual staff members can contribute to changing the museum's culture.
