Blank Canvas: December 5, 2018, Abby Smith and Matthew Rahming

On tonight’s Blank Canvas, guest host NAGB Education Officer Katrina Cartwright is joined by NAGB Community Outreach Officer Abby Smith and NAGB Curatorial Intern Matthew Rahming, who share some insights into their recent professional development endeavors–Abby at History Miami in Miami, Florida and Matthew at the NAGB.

Abby speaks to the impact shadowing the History Miami team for one week in August of this year had on her approach to the programmes she administers at the NAGB, bringing accessibility and inclusion to the forefront. Matthew explains how his one-year working at the museum as an intern has impacted his outlook so significantly, the trajectory of his career as an arts professional has been altered.

Join the conversation! The Blank Canvas airs today and every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on Guardian Talk Radio 96.9 FM.
