Voltaire wrote, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Join us in the United States capital at the American Alliance of Museums 2016 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo to explore how the themes of power, influence and responsibility shape the work of museums in the U.S. and around the world.
Museums are powerful community assets economically, culturally, educationally, and as places to convene and discuss issues of the day. They memorialize historic events and bear witness to political and social change. They strive to foster healthy dialogue and provide a venue for healing and renewal. Museums use their power to teach respect for cultural differences and foster community cohesion and sustainability. How is your museum using its power?
