VAM Annual Conference 2022

March 5-8 in Richmond, Virginia 

Plan Now to Join Us in
Richmond in 2022!

 Redefining Museums in
Changing Landscapes

Save the date to join your #VAMfam March 5-8, 2022 in Richmond, Virginia for our next annual conference.


Planning is underway for an exciting four-day event featuring some of Richmond's most iconic locations.
We invite you to help inform the educational content by submitting a proposal now through August 26. 

When our conference committee discussed a potential conference theme, it was a quick conversation. The Richmond Region has grown gradually over the past two decades, but this past year was challenging for Virginia’s capital. In 2020, the city underwent an explosion of physical as well as metaphorical change. From density growth to societal upheaval, removal of historic monuments, to protests for equality televised around the world, #RVA has experienced it all.

Museums, art and cultural organizations, and historic sites and their staffs have been greatly impacted by 2020, whether by the pandemic, current events, or community demands. The opportunities for discussion and debate at the 2022 conference are beyond measure

We encourage you to save the dates to join us in the River City for four days of community and conversation as we look at how contemporary life is redefining museums in changing landscapes.
