I'm writing a book! No, it is even better then that. I get to guide along the voices of museum professionals as they share their insights and stories about what it takes to be a museum professional.
We put so much into our work, making sure the collections, the mission and the visitors get the care and experience they deserve...but what about the people making it happen? In "The Care and Keeping of Museum Professionals" you'll get a chance to reflect on the stories that ring true to you and, maybe, understand a little better things your colleagues are going through.
The publishing contract is signed and sealed, there is just one thing missing. I believe very firmly that contributors deserve payment for their work. I've pulled together the funds to give them a modest amount, but nowhere near what they deserve. Every dollar in this Kickstarter will go to the contributors of this book in an attempt to pay them even a fraction of what their experience, dedication and research is worth.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge will be making sure that we keep all of the contributors on deadline. I have a generous due date and the full backing of everyone who has agreed to contribute to make that happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
