New Mexico Museums: Where Discoveries Happen!
Almost nothing in human experience is more exciting than seeing or learning something for the first time. At NMAM 2017 we hope to share this excitement. Tell us how the process of discovery is transforming YOUR New Mexico museum, science center or historic site. How do you ignite curiosity, inspire creativity, drive innovation? What new strategies and technologies are leading visitors to your institution on exciting journeys of exploration and discovery? What discoveries have you made? How do you make discovery happen at your institution?
The 2017 Program Committee is seeking proposals for engaging sessions that will be relevant to seasoned professionals and volunteers as well as newcomers to the field, and people in all job positions. Session blocks are 90 minutes, but can be divided in many ways: roundtable (2-3 presenters) with time for questions, 6-8 TED-style talks in one session, half-sessions, or half- or full-day workshops. Since discoveries can happen at any stage in your career, we welcome proposals from students to directors and everyone in between. The program committee will review all proposals and may ask you to combine with another proposer, or to lengthen or shorten your session.
To apply to present a session, please complete this form and submit it by June 9, 2017.
