Introduction to EDI Global Forum and EDI Ambassadors


From opening up mental soundscapes by captioning public buildings across a city, to mailing art engagement kits to localities who are not privileged with screen and internet capabilities to access the “digital turn” of art institutions, to connecting migrant objects in museum collections with the perspectives and expertise of migrant communities around the museum, to inviting the public to contribute works of art from their home to build a new kind of public collection, artists and institutions around the world are innovating ways to expand and deepen their engagement with publics with diverse ways of sensing and experiencing the world. Representatives from museums and festivals in Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Africa will speak to ways in which their institutions work to take the knowledge and values from inside the institutions out of their buildings to reach publics who might have not previously engaged with formal art institutions before.
