In societies across Europe, our everyday opportunities and experiences are governed by a number of intersecting privileges and inequalities. This has significant implications for our work in cultural heritage. Without knowing which professionals are represented in the cultural heritage sector and which aren’t, we can’t address the bigger questions of representation in the narratives we share and the collections we protect, preserve, nurture and grow. How can data collection help us take action to address these issues?
