The 2021 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo (#AAM2021) is taking place virtually May 24 and June 7-9.

The only event of its scope and scale, it brings together museums of all types and sizes—from art and history museums to zoos and botanic gardens—to share ideas and make connections that are transformative. It’s a place where all museum professionals learn from one another, create partnerships, and leave inspired to make an impact on their museums, communities, and the world.

The keynote speaker on May 24 will be Priya Parker, in conversation with Julissa Marenco. She is acclaimed author of  The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters and the host of the New York Times podcast, "Together Apart." Trained in the field of conflict resolution, Parker has worked on race relations on American college campuses and on peace processes in the Arab world, southern Africa, and India. 

During a time when museums have been challenged more than ever to address issues of racial equity in their institutions and communities, Julissa Marenco, Assistant Secretary for Communications and External Affairs and Chief Marketing Officer for the Smithsonian Institution, and Parker will discuss how to have complicated conversations about community, identity, and vision at moments of transition.
