Over the past year, museum professionals have grappled with questions concerning institutional identity, accessibility, visitor experience, staffing, and the widespread inequities of the field. Out of these challenges arose an inspiring host of ingenious, resourceful, and creative ideas. Focus shifted to the amazing people of museums – visitors, volunteers, and staff – as central to navigating these challenges.
The 2021 MAAM Annual Meeting will provide an opportunity to answer, “How do we center people in museums?” This conference will address what it means to be people-focused and will highlight key examples of where this approach can take us as a field. Conference discussions will center institutional identity, staffing, public programs, collections, and community engagement, among other relevant topics. We will share examples of efforts to enact change, discuss the future of museums during and beyond the pandemic, and address the continued inequities that shape professional participation in the museum field.
Instructions on how to attend the zoom events will be shared closer to the event date. All sessions will be recorded and available to participants 2 weeks after the conference.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration closes September 30th. If you would like to register after that date contact Averie, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to accommodate, but cannot guarantee entrance to the conference.
