2020 OMA Virtual Annual Conference
June 21-23, 2020

Museums thrive as places for all - spaces that truly anchor our communities. Museums are at our best when we represent our broader world while embracing the unique attributes and perspectives of every individual who walks through our doors.

What can museums learn from past community engagement, interpretation and internal culture – and how can we take those lessons to create a vision of the future of museums in our communities? How can museums lead the way in accessibility and inclusion amidst current changes to not only remain relevant, but contribute to the vibrancy of our cities?

Join us June 21-23 as we explore these topics and more at the first All-Virtual 2020 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference: Sparking Community Connections: Vibrancy through Accessibility, Inclusion & Relevance.
