2019: The Year of Big I.D.E.A.S.!

Updated Event Banner Template - 1920px x 1080px (6).png

San Diego Emerging Museum Professionals is proud to announce our 2019 theme: “Big I.D.E.A.S.”

As an acronym, IDEAS stands for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Sustainability.

These words are concepts, both concrete and abstract, that we encounter daily in the museum communities and beyond. While they have always been important to San Diego EMP and our programming, we’re excited to take a deep-dive into them with you this year!

What does inclusion mean to you? Diversity and equity? Accessibility and sustainability?

We plan to keep these ideas in the forefront as we invite you to join us for twelve carefully-crafted programs this year. From craft and conversations to hands-on workshops to helpful professional development panels… stay tuned for what is to come!

Stay connected with us on Facebook for event announcements!

Cheers to 2019,

San Diego EMP
