#ARCSChat January 2020: Art + Museum Transparency

January 10, 2020

Happy New Year and welcome back for January’s #ARCSChat! This month hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) sit down and speak with Michelle Millar Fishar (@AMTransparency), one of the founders of the Art and Museum Salary Spreadsheet, the Internship spreadsheet, and most recently, a Union spreadsheet. Our conversation dives into how the salary spreadsheet came to be, looks at some of the wider ranging labor disputes happening in the museum and collections field, and explores both the future of Art + Museum Transparency and how we can begin to enact small levels of change, creating a field of collections stewardship that is more inclusive, accessible and diverse.

Below are links to the resources we discussed in our chat:
