The Museum Association of New York (MANY) annual conference has been set for April 7-9, 2019 in Cooperstown, NY. Coordinators have announced a call for proposals, following the theme Acess & Identity.
Presentations by individuals from institutions of all sizes, all stages of their careers, and from all disciplines are welcome to submit a proposal. Share how your museum is changing, or has changed, the ways in which it approaches issues of access and identity to support your mission, in 10 PowerPoint slides in 10 minutes.
On Monday, April 8, conference attendees can sit at lunch tables organized by discussion topic. Organizers are calling for topic proposals and discussion leaders for each lunchtime session. Topic proposals should follow the conference theme of “Access & Identity.” Open tables will also be available for conversations to evolve organically.
Proposals will be reviewed by a committee of MANY board members and cultural institution professionals from the Cooperstown area. The deadline for proposal submission is October 24, 2018. The review committee will meet and those accepted will be notified in December.
