This session introduces the concept of resilient design, how it can be applied to your institution, and why it is important. Embedding resilience into design and operations helps to protect infrastructure and collections from climate-related disruptions. Session presenters will review case studies to examine planning methods that increase museums’ capacity to resist, adapt, and quickly recover from projected hazards. Attendees will be introduced to a hands-on planning tool they can use at their own institutions to help assess, prioritize, and plan for resiliency in their regions.
