Each day, I come to work believing we must embed museums into their communities in the most useful and necessary ways. This was always my intellectual pursuit as a student of museum studies at Georgetown University, and now at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML), I’m part of prioritizing innovative education in a way I have never seen before.
In each student I have had the privilege to work with, I see an endless lifetime of potential and possibility. As a museum employee, I see it as my duty to help cultivate that potential. That is exactly what we set out to do when we began the Revolution Starts in the Streets program, colloquially known to many involved as the “Berlin Wall project”. With this project our goals were lofty but our successes are greater than any one of us could have imagined.
