Many of our buildings are closed to the public and most likely your day-to-day routine has changed. UMA and UA&M are facilitating online conversations every Friday at 2 pm to keep you connected and share ideas about timely topics relevant to the museum community. Please join us!
Call for papers
FOR THE SPRING 2021 ISSUE OF EXHIBITION
A journal of exhibition theory & practice for museum professionals, published by NAME
DUE FRIDAY, July 10, 2020
As we post this call for Exhibition’s spring 2021 issue, we are in the midst of a global pandemic, and museums are facing new realities. As we grapple with all that entails, we invite those who create and think about exhibitions to give their colleagues the gift of their creativity, imagination, and experience to help envision a meaningful, thoughtful, and doable way forward in times of crisis.
"Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizing, but as human beings who have learned how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future." -Nelson Mandela
Join usevery Monday beginning at 3:30 p.m. as we discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on the cultural sector, available relief, and inspirational stories. Social distancing is difficult, but we are not alone.
Does your institution hold unprocessed archival papers, at-risk image collections in need of digitization, or other historical records in need of preservation? The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) has funding opportunities and has now extended the deadline in light of recent events.
The optional draft deadline is May 1, 2020. Applications are now due June 4, 2020. The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board recognizes that this is a trying time for everyone. We know that many of us are now working from home, with limited access to collections and even some looming uncertainty about the future of our institutions. With this in mind, the USHRAB will be extending the deadline for our spring grant round.
We hope that the extra month gives all of us the chance to settle into our new normal, negotiate any collections access necessary to craft your proposals, and gives you the opportunity to put thoughtful consideration to how your potential projects may or may not need to change in light of the challenges presented to us by COVID-19. Please bear in mind that the allotted time frame for projects remains unchanged: work cannot begin earlier than July 15, 2020, and must be complete by June 26, 2021.
