WELCOME TO THE MUSEUMS ASSOCIATION OF THE CARIBBEAN!
Our mission is to create a network that aids museums and cultural organisations across the Caribbean to share and benefit from their common skills and experiences. We have been supporting museums since 1987: helping to develop standards and best practice; serving as advisors to governments and the public on museum development; exchanging information and ideas; connecting organizations internationally; and conserving and preserving our natural and cultural heritage. Every year, we host a conference and annual general meeting for our members and other delegates within the region. Our most recent conference took place 11-16 November 2019 in Martinique, and was organized together with the Collectivité Territoriale de Martinique.
Women, Power and Museums: A Conversation with Community leader and human rights activist, Juana Alicia Ruíz Hernández and Professor and Director of the Multicultural and Interdisciplinary Institute of the UPRRP and Member of the Board of Directors of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico, María Elba Torres Muñoz.
