The Western Museums Association (WMA) cordially invites you to the 2018 Annual Meeting in Tacoma, Washington on October 21-24.
With INSPIRE as the theme for the Annual Meeting, content will focus on the ways museum inspire action, change, and unity. Sessions, programs, and informal discussions will center on questions such as: How can museums inspire communities to take action? How can museums be agents of social change and justice? How can we make museums more inclusive places?
Through multidisciplinary learning, WMA’s Annual Meetings further our professional discourse by providing a constructive environment for various perspectives to be shared and discussed. Six session tracks are offered which provide cross-disciplinary learning opportunities for all museum professionals regardless of specialty. There is no singular experience when working with museums, and by exploring shared and new knowledge we can better guide our institutions into the future.
Like its predecessors, the 2018 Annual Meeting will continue a rich tradition of innovative programming.
