How can we talk about our collections in ways that center directly impacted voices and tell a more complicated history of what is now New York State? This program takes a broad approach to understanding how collecting organizations in New York State talk about their collections. Though many of our organizations are working on metadata remediation and reparative description, many more are just beginning the journey of understanding and describing their collections for the public. This program invites all people who work in or volunteer for museums, libraries, archives, and cultural heritage organizations and/or sites, to engage in a conversation about how they currently talk about their collections and how they hope to talk about their collections in the future.
