Abstract

InDignity is a project conducted by the Anthropology museum in which we are working towards displaying an exhibit that targets both the indignities and dignities that we face as humans. This includes the sharing of discrimination, prejudice, and other stories of anguish where individuals have felt suppressed or treated less than who they are. At the same time, we bring to light on what each of our dignities are: what we are proud of, how we can promote compassion and acceptance, and how we can grow as a society. These topics intend to focus on both the positive and negative aspects of who we are as individuals by referring to different stories and circumstances within the experiences of the people in our community that we will be interviewing. The overall aim of the InDignity exhibit is for visitors to leave with a better understanding of the discrimination and prejudice that our society faces today, and what they can do to better our community and society. The purpose of our research is to address certain issues in our current society, such as the different types of discrimination and prejudices embedded in our everyday culture, and to develop our research into a well-executed museum exhibit that will leave a positive and powerful impact on our visitors.
