Mike Murawski

Consultant, Change Leader and Educator

After more than 20 years of work in education and museums, Murawski has become an outspoken advocate for transformative, human-centered change in museums, nonprofits, and beyond. He is a consultant, change leader, and the author of the book Museums as Agents of Change: A Guide to Becoming a Changemaker (2021).

Murawski is also the co-director of Art Nature Place, a business based in Portland, Oregon, that provides consulting services to outdoors nonprofits, museums, schools, and government agencies focused around place-based learning, connection to nature, and overall bringing a more human-centered approach to the organizations and projects we work with.

He previously served as the Director of Learning & Community Partnerships for the Portland Art Museum, Coordinator of Education and Public Programs at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, and Director of School Services at the Saint Louis Art Museum. He earned my MA and PhD in Education from American University in Washington, DC. When he’s not writing, drawing, or thinking about museums, you can find him on long trail runs in the forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest
