7 Travel Fellowships Awarded

Thanks to a generous grant from the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture's Office of Strategic Partnerships, MAC was able to provide travel fellowships for the 2018 conference. MAC received 30 applications and selected 7 Travel Fellows from Curacao, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Panama, and Puerto Rico. We look forward to meeting these Caribbean museum professionals soon!

Seeking Silent Auction Donations

One of the highlights of our annual gathering is the silent auction, taking place during the conference. We are reaching out to solicit donations from you and/or your organization. Previous auctions items have included museum merchandise, books, artwork, jewelry, travel related items, experiences, and even rare wines and spirits. Your contribution will help us continue serving the interests and professional needs of museums, galleries, and related institutions in the Caribbean. Please feel free to share this request with colleagues.
