MAMA invites your contributions: 

Approaching the Horizon: Missouri Association for Museums and Archives Annual Conference

October 19-21, 2021


Sponsored by Missouri Humanities Council

Call for Proposals [PDF]

As Missouri celebrates its 200th anniversary, it allows us all to reflect on our state’s history, but it also encourages us to look to the future. The theme for our Annual Conference is Approaching the Horizon. The conference will be held virtually.

Individuals from the museum/archives field and related communities are encouraged to present at this conference which will focus on creating optimism, growth, recovery, and new perspectives through planning and self-reflection as we strive to move forward in the post-pandemic world. You are encouraged to submit session proposals that demonstrate how you are envisioning a new future for your museum/archives through strategic planning, business modeling, incorporating new perspectives and interpretations, generating greater access, enhanced programming, or other means of creating a better institution for the next 200 years!

Submissions are due July 1, 2021 via email.

We are excited to welcome Beth Ziebarth (Director, Access Smithsonian) who will present: “Our Future is Inclusive: Museums, Archives, and Disabled People” [PDF]

Registration will open here and direct any questions to info AT missourimuseums DOT org
