The West Virginia Association of Museums annual meeting and conference will be held April 7-9, 2022, in Fayetteville, West Virginia.

 

The theme of WVAM’s 2022 conference is “Building Bridges: Facilitating Conversations in Our Communities.” The goal of our 2022 conference is to offer guidance on museum best practices and interpretive efforts, along with emphasizing the diverse voices within our communities to help keep West Virginia’s museums going strong well into the 21st century.

The conference will provide resources and tools for fostering environments in which more community members see themselves represented in museum collections and exhibits and feel comfortable interacting with a museum’s content and its interpretive framework. As a post COVID-19 world becomes more of a reality, it is important to ensure that visitors feel welcome at our institutions more than ever before.
