AAM 2020 - Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo
bridge to the future

Join us in San Francisco to envision how the world will be better because of the work museums do in coming decades. In this future, museums will ally with other sectors to address intractable social and economic problems–who will we work with, and how? The people who benefit from the work of museums will reflect the diversity of the communities museums serve. What will it take to make that aspiration come true? And on this journey through time, we will explore the challenges that will face museums along the way. Who will visit museums and what kind of experience will they expect? What financial models will museums use to sustain their work? How will philanthropy become more equitable and inclusive?

Hindsight is 2020, so journey with us to the future to look back on the many paths museums will take to achieve success.

This year, Kathleen Brown and Joy Bailey-Bryant will be participating in 3 of the sessions at AAM Annual Meeting.
