Sharing Our Stories:
The Role of MI Museums 

October 17-19, 2017


Are museums important? For museum professionals, that question has an obvious answer. We are the stewards of the stories of our communities. From the objects we collect and preserve to our exhibits and programs; from the sense of place we provide and the tourism we drive— of course that is important. Of course museums are important. But that value is not always as obvious to those outside the field on whom we rely for support: our governments, our funders, and even to our visitors and communities. We need to tell our own story as well. We need to talk about how we are serving and who we are serving.

Join us in Lansing to explore the role of Michigan museums as advocates for the communities we represent, as well as the need to advocate for the Michigan museum community.
