#MuseumWorkersSpeak's Workers' Wednesdays 2nd tweet chat: July 1, 2015

Workers' Wednesdays is a monthly tweet chat hosted by Museum Workers Speak, every first Wednesday from 2-3pm Eastern (1-2pm Central). These conversations counteract the silence/taboo around discussing working conditions in museums, interrogate the effect of museums' internal labor practices on their social missions and lead towards action. Each Workers' Wednesdays focuses on a topic; this week, it was “safe” and “unsafe” conversations in museums. Join us next time on Wednesday, August 5!


  1. First, we laid some groundwork for our second tweet chat, including links to an inspirational op-ed in Museum magazine written by our colleagues at the Incluseum blog, to the Storify summaries for our "rogue session" at #AAM2015 and June's Workers' Wednesdays tweet chat, to our appearance on the Museum Life podcast, and to our blog post at the Center for the Future of Museums.
  2. @MuseumHue asked the first question, which dug right into this month's theme of "safe" and "unsafe" conversations in museums.
