Many of our buildings are closed to the public and most likely your day-to-day routine has changed. The Utah Museums Association and Utah Division of Arts & Museums are facilitating online conversations every Tuesday and Friday at 2 pm to keep you connected and share ideas about timely topics relevant to the museum community. This is a new use of technology for many of us so we expect there to be some bumps along the way and we will make adjustments as needed.
Each conversation will have a topic to keep us focused. If you have suggestions for topics or would be willing to lead a topic please let us know by filling out this form.
