2023 Conference Theme

Testing Traditions: Revisiting Museum Basics & Redefining What Works

The 2023 IAM Conference theme examines how museums are situated at a critical point in our industry’s history. Post-pandemic lifestyles have altered how missions are fulfilled, leading museums toward becoming the “anywhere, anytime” community resource.

This paradigm shift has led many of us to ask what does this mean for exhibits, educational programs, governance, and placemaking in our spaces? We are seeking conference sessions or workshop proposals that explore current or new ways of doing our work.
