Visioning Change

New York State’s museums and cultural institutions are responding to our changing audiences, the promise of new technology, and the shifting availability of resources. We are creating powerful museums through new partnerships with arts and community organizations, education and environmental institutions, the tourism industry, and local governments. As we strive to define ourselves and the meaning of diversity, we are changing the questions we ask and how we tell stories about our collections. Our need for learning and sharing what we do by coming together as a field is greater than ever. Join us in Rochester to discuss what comes next and help us build a vibrant future!
