2021 Theme: Resilience, Learning, Innovation
In 2020, Smithsonian Affiliations adapted the National Conference to the moment we were in. We became a Virtual Conference almost overnight. We convened around ways to respond to the challenges of a global pandemic, racial injustice, and political divisiveness. We asked ourselves how our collaborations can tackle these critical conversations and ensure greater reach, greater relevance, and profound impact. Over three-months of programming, we heard from each other and laid the foundations for taking action and working together.
In the past year we have learned how to be resilient, to listen and learn from each other, and to be leaders in innovation. We invite you to join us in 2021 for our Smithsonian Affiliations Virtual Conference where our theme “Resilience, Learning, Innovation” will bring Smithsonian Affiliates and Smithsonian colleagues together to build upon the groundwork we have started.
