MAAM 2015 Annual Conference: Building Communities: Embracing Diversity in All We Do
Proposals due: April 2, 2015
Conference held: October 21-23, 2015
Call for Proposals!
Join MAAM in Philadelphia this October as we discuss Building Communities: Embracing Diversity in All We Do. We invite you to contribute to the dialogue with a conference session proposal. Please consider a submitting a proposal on one of the following Building Communities topics:
- Creating pathways for new audiences
- Engaging community members
- Reflecting diversity in boards, staff, programming, collections, and/or outreach
- Accessing new fiscal resources
- Social justice issues in museums
The annual meeting is the perfect opportunity to introduce theoretical or philosophical frameworks that explore daily issues shared by all. Sessions should present differing perspectives that constructively embrace controversy, enliven the session, and reflect the conference theme. You do not need to be the “expert” to propose or organize a session. Vendors are also welcome to submit proposals, but all panels should include at least one museum professional. The MAAM Program Committee, comprising recognized museum professionals, will review all proposals. Click here to download the 2015 Call for Proposals.
