Weaving a Net(work) of Care for Oceanic Collections: A Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Museum Summer Institute

A six-week summer institute to provide education and training to 20 early to mid-career Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders working in museum and heritage centers throughout the Pacific, including Hawai'i and United States Island Areas. The institute would focus on museum management and collections care for institutions, professionals, and communities that care for Oceanic collections.

This collaborative proposal by the University of Hawai'i (lead applicant) and East-West Center seeks $350,000 to provide education and training to twenty early to mid-career Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders working in museum and heritage centers throughout the Pacific, including Hawai'i and US Island Areas. Taking place for six weeks in the summer of 2021, this intensive institute will be designed and implemented through an extensive network of local, national and regional organizations. It will include lectures, presentations and hands-on workshops at Honolulu-based museums by more than 30 field experts in the areas of Collections Care, Exhibitions, and Conservation. Because Oceanic humanities collections tell important stories about Pacific peoples and their contributions to the US and the world, this institute and its cohort of Pacific professionals will strengthen their network of care, ensuring the preservation of and access to these collections for future generations.
