Revisioning Relevance to become OF/BY/FOR ALL
Join the Indiana Arts Commission and Indiana Humanities for Revisioning Relevance to become OF/BY/FOR ALL with Nina Simon.
Event Details

The crises of 2020 challenged many of us to rethink how we lead, create, fundraise, program, and engage with audiences. If the pandemic is a portal (as Arundhati Roy puts it), where do we hope it will lead us? How can we reimagine and reinvent our organizations to be more relevant and inclusive?

In this interactive webinar, Nina Simon will share concrete strategies to help your team re-vision your organization and your relationship with the communities that matter most to your future. You’ll leave the webinar with tools you can use to build a future of, by, and for your community.

This event will take place via Zoom webinar; tickets are free but advanced registration is required. A confirmation email with the event link will be sent upon registration and again the week of the event.



Nina Simon has been described as a “museum visionary” by Smithsonian Magazine for her community-centered approach to design. She is the Spacemaker and CEO of OF/BY/FOR ALL, a movement to build more inclusive community organizations. From 2011-2019, she was the Executive Director of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, leading a dramatic institutional turnaround. She has consulted with hundreds of international museums, libraries, parks, historic sites, art and cultural centers on issues of relevance, community engagement, and participatory design. Nina is the best-selling author of The Participatory Museum and the popular Museum 2.0 blog. Her work has been shared in the Wall Street Journal, New York TimesNPR, and TEDx. She lives off the grid in the Santa Cruz mountains with nineteen people, twenty-seven chickens, three dogs, and one zipline.
