2021 Conference Series

The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) is excited to announce our 50th Anniversary Conference Series! Throughout 2021, we will be hosting four virtual events to celebrate excellence in the Alberta museum community over the past 50 years and examine the trends and priorities that are shaping the future of our sector.

Guided by the four pillars of ReconciliationInclusionCommunity, and Innovation, the 50th Anniversary Conference Series will explore the dynamic ways museums represent, engage, and connect with the people and world around them.
