2021 OMA Virtual Annual Conference
April 11-13, 2021

Moonshot – noun – “an extremely ambitions or innovative project.”

This is our moonshot moment, museums. Amidst a year of disruption, upheaval and change, museums have had to reimagine our critical role and our impact. This is our opportunity to address the needs of our community, learn to navigate in innovative ways, and leave the “this is how we’ve always done it” mindset in the past.

How can we continue to evolve and use this opportunity to reexamine our operations, internal structures and how we execute our missions? How can museums transform, connect, and lead our community when it’s needed most?

Join us April 11-13 as we explore these topics and more at the 2021 Ohio Museums Association’s Virtual Annual Conference - Museums Reimagined: Opportunities to Reflect, Recover and Reinvent.
