What is cultural competency? And why is it important for those working in Hawaiʻi’s heritage sector? Join us as we talk about cultural competency as a framework for fostering meaningful relations between museum workers and the cultural practitioners that enrich our programs and institutions. These workshops include a panel on museum indigenization practices, as well as a talk-story with cultural practitioners across Ka Pae ʻĀina o Hawaiʻi about the challenges and opportunities of working with museums and related institutions.  The focus of this session is on Oʻahu & Kauaʻi.

Participation is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Co-sponsored by the Hawaii Museums Associations and Hawaii Tourism with institutional partners: East-West Center and the UHM Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program.
