OMA-WaMA Joint Virtual Conference 2021

A Changed Landscape, A Changed Museum
September 13-15, 2021

Oregon Museums Association (OMA) and Washington Museum Association (WaMA) are excited to join forces to host our 2021 Conference: A Changed Landscape, A Changed Museum. The two-day virtual conference will be accompanied by in-person events occurring across both states (as public health regulations allow).

This past year changed us all, as we grappled with COVID-19, systemic racism, political strife, and climate change. We progress into 2021 with the news of vaccinations and re-openings, and with a new sense of hope. As we emerge into a changed landscape, we can use our re-opening momentum to become changed museums.

Join WaMA and OMA to re-emerge, re-invent, and re-imagine a stronger museum future.
