Management & Administration
As climate change exacerbates weather patterns and resources are stretched thin, what are museums of the Americas
doing to manage emergencies and protect our cultural heritage? What can we learn from the the disastrous fire in the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro and the preparation of the earthquake and volcano-prone UNESCO World Heritage Site of Antigua, Guatemala? Speakers will highlight resources, funders, and ongoing programs, including the work of APOYOnline (Association for Heritage Preservation of the Americas) and ICOM‐LAC (International Council of Museums, Latin America and Caribbean) to prepare museum and preservation professionals and to strengthen communications networks throughout the Americas.
