The Western Museums Association (WMA) presents the second installment of WestMusings | 10 Minute Museum Talks, which took place during the 79th Annual Meeting in Las Vegas on October 5-8, 2014. WestMusings are short, engaging presentations by forward-thinking museum leaders. This year, WestMusers offered personal narratives about their origin stories and how they are connected to museums. Join WMA as we celebrate the spark and passion that drives museum work.
The Western Museums Association (WMA) is proud to present the videos from the first WestMusings | Ten Minute Museum Talks. This new programmatic feature took place at the 2013 Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City. Based on TED Talks' model, WestMusings is an unconference program of short, rehearsed, and engaging presentations on museum related topics. WestMusings will provide an important platform for tomorrow's museums leaders to speak today at Annual Meetings.
WestMusings 2013 was genorously sponsored by Wells Fargo and Nixon Peabody, LLP. The event was underwritten by and filmed at the Church History Museum.
