Brown Bag: Halloween Costumes & Cultural Appropriation

  • Abbe Museum 26 Mount Desert Street Bar Harbor, ME, 04609 United States (map)

‘Tis the season for a frank and inclusive discussion about cultural appropriation. Join the Abbe’s education team for a brown bag lunch as we discuss representation and appropriation around Halloween. We’ll talk about what cultural appropriation means and why it’s harmful. This is meant to be an open dialogue as our goal is to make our museum spaces welcoming and safe for all visitors. 

This program is free and open to the public. Don’t forget your lunch!
