Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko on giving voice to those represented in museums


Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko's work as a museum administrator is focused on giving voice and the power to direct back to the people whose culture and heritage are represented in the museum, advocating, through practice, for “decolonising” the museum space.

Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko is a passionate advocate for museums and their intersections with social justice and activism, community development, and memory and remembrance.

Prior to joining the Abbe Museum as president in 2009, Catlin-Legutko was the director of the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

She serves on the board of the American Alliance of Museums, the Maine Humanities Council, and the Smithsonian Affiliates Advisory Council.

This talk was given as part of a TEDx event.
