NMAM 2020 Virtual Conference
Future Proofing: New Realities
Future-Proofing is the process of anticipating and preparing for future impacts beyond our immediate control. Change has a profound effect on all aspects of museum and cultural work from marketing and fundraising, to policies and procedures, collections management, and visitor experience. Our 2020 focus is providing conference attendees skills and methods to manage our new reality in the age of COVID-19 including the development of digital storytelling, virtual exhibits, and creative means of distanced audience engagement. How can we ensure that museums remain relevant for the next seven generations?
