2018 NYCMER Conference - "React & Respond: The Next Steps"

Where: Teachers College Columbia University
525 West 120th St
New York, New York

When:9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Workshop Organizer: NYCMER

How do we react and respond? How do museums stay relevant to today’s visitors in the context of our changing and evolving world? As individuals, educators, and museum professionals we often have immediate reactions to events occurring throughout our communities and nation that require prompt, measured, and considered responses. As public entities, museums must acknowledge and balance competing concerns and ideas from visitors, leadership, boards and donors, institutional missions, trends in the broader field, current events, and emerging movements both local and national.

 

This year's conference will feature:

- Keynote Conversation with Gonzalo Casals, Director of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, and Annie Polland, Executive Director at the American Jewish Historical Society. Moderated by Keonna Hendrick, cultural strategist and educator.

26 sessions and 5+ poster presentations on a variety of topics including: inclusivity, best practices and lessons learned, access, activism and social justice, community engagement, program development and facilitation, equity, diversity, advocacy, and more!
