“The presentations given were inspiring and of great content...The conference not only brings professionals from the Caribbean together, but from other parts of the world as well. I got to meet a lot of new people with which future collaborations can be made...I would definitely take part in the conference again.”

“I like the diversity of the papers presented as well as the panelists’ backgrounds. I like the space the conference creates for the gathering of museum professionals and cultural managers from the Caribbean, Latin America, USA and Europe to present the developments and recent projects at museums as places for community engagement...it represented an excellent opportunity to make connections with peers of other museums and share experiences.”

“I was interested in attending the conference to learn firsthand how museums in the Caribbean engage their audiences, particularly youth, in critical reflections about Caribbean history and culture. However, this experience has provided an opportunity to learn about this and so much more. Raising awareness about the value of heritage in small nations like Panama and those of the Caribbean is no small task. It was refreshing to hear presenters share their experiences tackling difficult local public policy issues related to tourism and heritage preservation as well as defining what is heritage.”

“I thought of it as a great networking space for museology professionals. I had the opportunity to get exposed to things I did not know about and learned to broaden my frame of reference.”
