Case Study

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Canada explores human rights and creates an environment that promotes respect for others and encourages reflection and dialogue. How is this mandate fulfilled outside Museum walls?

The online space provides opportunity for dialogue but can quickly become a space for hatred and vitriol. Through case studies, we will explore how we bring exhibitions and programs to life on platforms including Facebook Live. Even online marketing promotions provide opportunities for conversation about subjects such as diversity and inclusion. How does a Museum moderate this virtual discussion and still respect the rights of individuals participating?
