Launched with a $25,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, CARES will determine the potential for community and statewide collaborations in collections-driven research, education, storage, preservation, and conservation efforts, and inform the conceptual design of a MAM collections center in Missoula.
Community Design Charrettes
How can a new collection facility meet the needs of K-12 and higher education? What new education and research materials will benefit students and teachers? What are our opportunities for collaborating?
Community members, educators, and cultural collections staff and volunteers are invited to participate in a facilitated conversation that will influence the future of MAM’s collection and education resources.
This event is open to the public, but registration is encouraged. Please fill out this form and email it to Lily Scott, Events and Public Programs Coordinator, or call 406.728-0447.
Limited travel funds are available for those who also attend the design charrette following the workshop; inquire with program director, Brandon Reintjes.
