What are these Spark events?
Minnesota's museums are located in every county and region and over the course of the next programming year, MAM will be hosting statewide meet-ups throughout Minnesota! We want to connect with all of you and better understand the important work you're doing and learn even more ways that we can help you make Minnesota communities even more healthy, vibrant, and sustainable.
What happens at #MAMSpark events?
Each event is hosted by a local institution and other local partners. Kicking off with an outdoor recreational activity, we will start right away by grounding our conversations in a sense of place. At the core of each #MAMSpark event is a professional development opportunity where museum professionals are given a safe space to discuss strategies for museums to become more inclusive and welcoming. Finally, each event offers a chance for casual networking at a happy hour social where we will toast with local beverages.
Where are they located?
For the 2016–2017 programming year, MAM will be traveling to Duluth, Red Wing, and Fargo-Moorhead. Interested in hosting a #MAMSpark event next year? Let us know!
Who can attend?
#MAMSpark events are for museum professionals from around the state. While some locations may be more convenient than others, everyone is welcome.
What is the cost?
MAM is committed to making our professional development opportunities accessible to everyone. Each event is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Not a member? Join MAM today for discounts on all MAM events throughout the year!
But I live in the Twin Cities! Can I still attend?
Of course! We want these events to inspire connection across our entire state. Thanks to our great friends and partners over at the Minnesota Transportation Museum, we are able to offer limited space on a coach bus to take us from the Twin Cities to each of the Spark events. These are day trips and are no extra charge: the whole day is $15 for members and non-members alike. Take a break from your office and come explore with us!
