The Western Museums Association’s (WMA) Annual Meeting is known as a premier venue for those who work in the museum industry to exchange ideas and best practices, network with colleagues, and learn from each other by attending valuable sessions. Attendees come away inspired and energized about their profession. Upon returning home, they seek out opportunities to grow and further the creative culture that is the foundation of our society.
The Western Museums Association’s 2018 Annual Meeting will be held in Tacoma, Washington on October 21-24. The theme of the 2018 Annual Meeting is INSPIRE, and will focus on the ways museums inspire action, change, and unity.
- Museums as inclusive places
- Unconventional and innovative partnerships
- Diversity in exhibits, programming, and on museum staff and boards
- Museums as agents of social change / social justice
- Environmental responsibility
- Activism in museums
The 2018 Program promises to provide a multitude of perspectives representative of today’s museum landscape, and continue the WMA’s rich tradition of provocative programming and educational opportunities.
