Colleen Connolly Receives Fulbright Grant to Taiwan to Research Multilingual Museum Design

Read Time: 1 minute
Colleen Connolly, recent graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University’s graphic design program, believes that museums can educate and serve more diverse audiences by providing multilingual exhibits, signage, and resources. She was awarded a Fulbright Arts Research Grant to explore bilingual (Chinese/English) signage and exhibitions in Taiwanese museums and tourist sites. Taiwan has declared that it will achieve its goal of being a completely bilingual country by 2030, necessitating nationwide conversations on how providing bilingual design can create more accessible spaces for people of different cultural and language backgrounds.
