The Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG), the Council of Museum Anthropology (CMA), and the Association of Senior Anthropologists (ASA) have come together to co-organize a unique event at the Burke Museum with the help of the Museum’s executive, curatorial and events staff. The event will take place from 3-5 pm on Thursday November 10, with participants able to access the Burke’s galleries from 2 pm onwards. With exhibits and research programs that explore the connections that communities have with culture, art, and the material past, the Burke Museum aims to inspire action, generate knowledge, and aid in healing processes. The event will begin in the lobby near the gift shop, where attendees will be provided with a brief introduction to the museum. Next, they will have the opportunity to visit the museum’s exhibits to enjoy “tiny talks” provided by the museum’s curatorial staff.
Space at this event is limited to 130 guests, so at this time it is open only to members of ATIG, CMA, and ASA.
