Communities in Dialogue: Models of Best Practices for Academic Museums, Galleries, and Collections

Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Renaissance Marriott Hotel, Washington, DC

Wednesday, May 25, 2016
Katzen Arts Center, American University, Washington DC

AAMG is spearheading a national effort to compile best practices for academic museums, galleries, and collections through their educational activities, advocacy efforts, and partnerships. In support of this critical initiative, this year’s conference is dedicated to gathering and sharing benchmarks and best practices in face of the many challenges we share.

Although many of our professional practices are aligned with the wider museum community and AAM standards (especially with regard to accreditation), as museums and galleries working within larger institutions we have unique missions and operational issues. This year AAMG is presenting models of best practices — governance, teaching, museum studies, collaboration, community partnerships — that can contribute to the development of procedures, policies, and systems that will serve and inform the academic museum and galleries field today and for years to come.
