Sandra Jackson-Dumont 'I’ll Take You There: Museums as Sites for Self-Reflection, Igniting Discussions, and Challenging Assumptions' This talk explores the role museums/galleries can play in fostering the dynamic exchange of ideas. In her uncanny presentation style, Jackson-Dumont will speak to the importance of relevance, intellectual agility, collaboration and depth of knowledge when attempting to make meaning with and for youth. Biography: Jackson-Dumont is the Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education at The Metropolitan Museum of Art—the largest museum in the western hemisphere. She is responsible for the vision and management of education, public programs, the live arts/performance, audience development and academic programs. Her work encompasses a wide range of experiences designed for a diverse cross-section of audiences. Known for her ability to blur the lines between academia, popular culture, performance, social justice, and non-traditional art-going communities, Jackson-Dumont is invested in curating experiences that foster dynamic exchanges between art/artists, past/present, public/private, and people/places. She was formerly the Deputy Director for Education + Public Programs and Adjunct Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Seattle Art Museum. Prior to her appointment at SAM, Jackson-Dumont worked at the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Whitney Museum of American Art among other cultural organizations.
