In this next section, we will be introducing you to practical ideas for implementing inclusionary programming.

We explore the complexity and contradictions found in concepts such as ‘diversity’ and warn against using them in notional ways. We also expand our toolkit for understanding contexts through an introduction to the concept of intersectionality. This key concept helps to identify, understand and address the ways in which nuanced and overt power relations between groups, communities, museums may be navigated for inclusionary practice.
