VCAM 2018 Conference Call for Papers

A Volunteer Committees of Art Museums (VCAM) Conference is a North American conference that showcases the roles of volunteers and staff in visual art museums. Since 1952 VCAM has acted as a platform for showcasing best practices from today to shine a light on the museums of tomorrow and the community.

On 24-27 September 2018 we will be holding our twenty-third conference in North America. With two days of presentations, discussions, debates and networking at The Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit.

Every VCAM conference has a theme. The 2018 VCAM Conference theme is “The role that arts organizations play in the makeup of a city and its community is changing.”

Remembering our institutions do not stand still, this conference will explore how museum staff and volunteers contribute to the emergence of the culturally, socially, and digitally networked arts institutions.

We are now inviting workshop proposals and welcome your ideas on the contributions of museum staff members and volunteers to the emergence of culturally, socially and digitally networked arts institutions.
