I really care about creating experiences in museums that facilitate social bridging – people connecting with other people who aren’t like them. I want to create safe environments where people can grapple with their own perspectives, celebrate their communities, and learn more about one another and the things we all cherish.

Social bridging is essential to building strong, safe, diverse communities. There are few places where bridging happens naturally. If we can make our museum a place that intentionally encourages and inspires bridging, we will make a powerful impact on our whole community.

Are there examples of a fusion of social bridging with open journalism?
