Host: American Alliance of Museums' Committee on Audience Research & Evaluation

What does belonging look like in cultural institutions? This webinar, presented by the American Alliance of Museums’ Committee on Audience Research & Evaluation, shares how two projects worked to understand belonging – across a diversity of institutions and visitor perspectives. The session explores the models of belonging that have guided their work – the overlaps and separations between them – as they have emerged from existing literature on belonging and in conversation with the guests participating in these studies. This webinar will share the participating projects’ study methodologies and results to equip participants with some tools and information to further the field wide exploration of the concept of visitor belonging. Finally, the webinar will feature a collective discussion with participants about the affordances and challenges of applying a concept like visitor belonging to further program and experience innovation, as well as DEAI goals.
