The Museum Institute is a retreat for museum professionals held at Great Camp Sagamore in the heart of the Adirondacks. Participants learn in collaboration with presenters who use their own experiences, successes, and challenges to start and inspire conversations. Over the course of four days in this beautiful and isolated environment, all you will be asked to do is think deeply and participate in learning. In between conversations you will have time to explore the grounds of Camp Sagamore or sit by the fire in the evening.
This years’ theme is “Leadership, Partnership, and Mentorship.” Participants will have the opportunity to learn from other leaders in the museum field who will share their expertise to help create solutions, build audiences, and develop institutional management skills. Presenters include Franklin Vagnone (Twisted Preservation and Old Salem Museums & Gardens), John Yeagley (Twisted Preservation), Dr. Georgette Grier-Key (Eastville Community Historical Society), Rob Cassetti (Corning Museum of Glass), and Chloe Hayward (The Studio Museum in Harlem).
