Ohio Museums Association 2017 Annual Conference
Venue: check OMA website
The one thing constant is change. With our world growing more complex every day, change within museums isn’t just inevitable, it’s necessary to remain critical, meaningful and relevant to our communities. Across Ohio, museums are using this idea to transform their institutions – paving the way with innovative programming and ideas, audience engagement, sustainability, collections care and more – to enhance and support their mission and better serve their community.
With the wealth of innovation happening in Ohio museums comes the opportunity for us to share knowledge- what’s worked, what didn’t, and what we learned from it all. Join us in Toledo, April 2nd and 3rd as we explore these topics and more at the 2017 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference, Transforming Museums: Secrets to Success. OMA is looking for innovative and engaging sessions that will create an interactive experience for our conference attendees.
