2014 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo

May 18–21, Seattle

The Innovation Edge

Innovation is a defining quality of our time. Creating the new, reimagining the old, adapting the present to changing needs have become the goals of the best and the brightest among us. To go from the seed of an idea to universally adopted reality seems to take mere weeks—reading books on our phones, wearing a computer, printing three-dimensional objects in our own homes.

What better place than Seattle to explore how museums can gain that Innovation Edge, here on the western edge of the U.S, and the eastern edge of the Pacific Rim? How do we engage, support and sustain innovation in our museums and in our communities? How can our museums serve as engines of innovation? What examples can we share of the best recent innovations in education? What are the innovative models in conservation, exhibitions, audience engagement, development and more?
