Collective Journeys is a museum consultancy that helps historical organizations create inclusive narratives and sustainable community relationships. We believe that museums and historic sites are the perfect venues for bringing together diverse people to begin the important process of reconciliation.
When we speak of reconciliation, we mean the ongoing process that involves resolve to change, justice, and forgiveness. Our society has had its fair share of challenges, and we must acknowledge that relationships and systems are broken.
A careful and critical exploration of the past gives us the ability to see each other’s stories in a new light, create new relationships, and break down the barriers that prevent a collective spirit where all members of civil society can flourish.
We value the collective energy that can flow from the differences that separate us. Regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability, geography, or age, we believe that everyone comes to the table with unique gifts, and we are passionate about collecting and sharing those gifts that will ultimately convert fractured communities into restorative communities.
Good Ancestor T-Shirts
A Dakota Elder once asked the most contemplative question we have ever heard: "What kind of ancestor will you be?"
Because of him, and the work of many others across the globe, we want to inspire the world to consider the impact of our actions on the future.
