Stephanie Cunningham is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Museum Hue, an organization that works to increase diversity in patrons, professionals, and cultural producers in the creative economy. She recognizes the absence of diversity and inclusion in cultural enclaves and uses her presence and voice to counter this reality, foster agency, and write new narratives for people of color in culture.
Her teaching career spans over five years and has afforded her the opportunity to teach in a variety of environments to a vast range of audiences. She has practiced inquiry-based learning methodologies at the Brooklyn Museum and the New-York Historical Society. Stephanie has served as an educator for children k-12, and adults audiences as well as more didactic approaches in tertiary level classes as a lecturer at City College of New York (CUNY), and New Jersey City University.

There are many ways to prepare for an enjoyable conference experience. One is to make sure you have an active NYCMER membership so that you're one of the first to be notified when our conference tickets go on sale, since registration is limited and often sells out. Another is to get to know your fellow NYCMER members before the conference by joining one of our many peer groups or attending the pre-conference. Many NYCMER members are also active on Twitter, and we encourage conference attendees to prepare and share with us @NYCMER and each other with a designated hashtag.
To get a sense of what it's like to attend a NYCMER Conference, check out this video documenting our conference at the American Museum of Natural History in 2013:
