Radical Inclusion and Creativity: Working for Museum Innovation

Center for Public Humanities
, Lecture Room
Like many creatives, Sage’s career has not followed a well-established, linear trajectory. Rather, she has had to make her way along the sometimes thorny path of her own design. Her last three jobs were created for and by her, and sparked innovations, spurred new partnerships and resulted in the inclusion of young people who are too often excluded from universities and museums. Sage’s presentation is a poetic interpretation of her public cultural humanity work through the creative lens of equity.
