#AAMG2022: Sustainability Now!

Empowering Community Adaptation and Transformation

AAMG’s 2022 annual conference will focus on how academic museums and galleries embrace resilience and an array of emergent forms of sustainability. Marking a return to gathering in person, AAMG will convene a first-ever hybrid conference that aims to continually expand equitable opportunities for participation parallel to a renewal of in-person collegiality. This year’s conference seeks diverse perspectives, ranging from nuanced philosophical ideas, and creative pragmatic solutions, to thoughtful debates about leadership and our field, including:

  • How are galleries and museums transforming their missions and lived values to contribute to community wellbeing?
  • How do climate change, power-imbalances, and social injustice force a reinterpretation of the meaning and care of collections and archives?
  • How are museums and galleries promoting active and impactful citizenship and driving change for social, environmental and economic action?
  • What should we do, and do better, to lead in an evolving world?
