Making History and Recording It

Call for Proposals: AAAM 2016 Conference

The 2016 Association of African American Museums program committee is issuing a call for session proposals that explore the changing audiences of African American Museums. These proposals should put forth new, original, and leading-edge models and ideas that address the evolution of African American museum visitorship. We want to learn how our organizations are defining their current/future audiences, how they are engaging these audiences, and what implications these changes have for the museum field. The long-term sustainability of African American museums rests on our ability to attract and successfully serve our visitors. This goal requires an ongoing exploration of the complexity of our audiences and a willingness to diversify approaches and offerings to engage them.
