Conference 2022

Inside Out: Reconsidering Museum Culture

Save the Date

The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) invites you to save the date for our 2022 Annual Conference! Join colleagues from across Alberta in-person, in Edmonton, on September 17, 2022, and online on September 23, 2022, for Inside Out: Reconsidering Museum Culture.

Registration details will be announced over the coming months. Please note that space for our in-person event will be limited.

In response to events that have occurred over the past few years - both locally and globally - the museum community is reconsidering the nature of museum work, both internally and externally. Historically, museums have addressed societal issues through outward facing efforts like education, public programs, and exhibitions. But museums also have a role to play in advocating for social change within their own sector.

This Conference will examine issues around trust and authority, activism, and social responsibility, in order to create a framework in which museums can see themselves as leaders and advocates for social change.

More information about our Annual Conference will be made available in the coming weeks.

For more information regarding the AMA's Annual Conference or other professional development opportunities, please contact Meredith Leary, Program Lead, at learning@museums.ab.ca or 780.424.2626.
