We presented the experiences and results of the Diversity in Schools project and several of the museum’s other collaborations with schools. Educators were invited to share ideas with experts on the best way to deal with heterogeneity in schools. We questioned how learning settings and change processes at schools could be structured and reflected on what a non-discriminatory school and museum culture might look like.
