About the Speaker: Meghan Quigley Graham, Associate Educator for Youth Learning, Portland Museum of Art
Using art as a springboard, Meghan enjoys facilitating engaging conversations and meaningful interactions. Most of Meghan’s experience in museums focuses on youth engagement and empowerment, but she loves connecting people of all ages with artwork. Recently, Meghan began working with medical professionals using artwork to hone close looking skills, empathy, and to instill a practice of slowing down and leaning into joy and gratitude. Her practice as an educator is informed by social-emotional learning, social justice lenses, honoring that multiple truths exist, and cultivating empathy and compassion.
Before her current role, Meghan worked at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Currently, Meghan oversees youth learning in many capacities at the PMA including creating and maintaining partnerships with educators and their students, programming events for families, and developing a new remote learning initiative, PMA Classroom.
