Seen and Heard: Cultural Organizations and the LGBTQ Experience

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share with Email

Exploring national and local initiatives to archive, preserve and interpret LGBTQ history and culture, as well as evolving practices to involve and include LGBTQ communities.

From local historical sites to national organizations such as the National Park Service and the American Alliance of Museums, cultural heritage and cultural arts professionals are part of the evolution of the field to tell more inclusive stories, particularly highlighting marginalized and erased communities. Dr. Susan Ferentinos, public historian, writer, consultant and author of Interpreting LGBT History at Museums and Historic Sites will introduce current trends and issues in U.S. LGBTQ historical interpretation. She will be joined by Jordan Ryan of Indiana Historical Society and Mike Barclay of Indianapolis Contemporary, to discuss Indianapolis’ LGBTQ history, historic preservation and cultural arts initiatives. Audience Q&A will follow.

Free! RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 6.

A part of the 2019 Spirit and Place Festival

Presented by IUPUI Museum Studies Program, IUPUI Public History Program, and Indiana Historical Society
