Mimosa Shah is Adult Program Coordinator at Skokie Public Library, where for the past six years she has managed, developed, and evaluated informal learning opportunities for adults. She is also very excited to be starting online coursework towards an MLIS through the University of Illinois’s School of Information this fall. Mimosa is deeply involved with MCN (Museum Computer Network), a learning organization dedicated to digital transformation of museums and the GLAM sector more widely. This year, she and her fellow annual conference co-chairs are planning a virtual conference around the theme of sustainability, and in particular, what practices can be used to preserve or progress the field in the face of uncertainty. Her work alternates between the analog and digital, with interests in media literacy and ways to deal with misinformation campaigns; digital photography and how we use various platforms to share, archive, and work against the constraints they sustain; zine-making and paper arts that memorialize stories that deserve to be documented; and space-making for and with communities marginalized by aspects of their identities. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, photography, hikes with her family, and dreaming about traveling.
