Lessons from the Field: Case Study on Latino New South

An in-depth case study documenting the successes of Latino New South, a collaborative innovation between Levine Museum of New South, the Atlanta History Center, and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. These three organizations entered EmcArts Innovation Lab for Museums with the intention of making their programs and institutions more resonant with, and responsive to, the fast-growing Latino communities in their respective cities.

From Expert to Collaborator

Moving from the traditional stance of ‘the expert with important stories to tell’ to ‘building stories with community’ requires an openness and humility that is often not easy for museums.


Do you want to develop sustainable relationships with new audiences? Do you want to build community? Shhh! Be quiet and listen.
