Texas Association of Museums: Inspired Places Inspire People, Annual Meeting 2019

El Paso, TX will be hosting the 2019 annual conference for Texas Association of Museums in April 2019. The upcoming conference theme is, "Inspired Places Inspire People."  The community in which the museum lives defines its mission, values, and work. As professionals, we want our museums to be relevant, well attended, and meaningful for those who visit. Creating that meaningful place takes more than offering what we believe will resonate with the community. It takes the museum being an integral part of that community and a willingness to adapt necessary.

We must think deeply about what makes our communities unique—history, culture, and geographic location—are all components that define a place. In Texas, our geographic range cultural influences, and cross-cultural history creates a landscape of museums that are both vastly different from each other and yet share the same commitment—to reflect the community in which they are a part.
