Annual Convening

2023 Convening: Forging Pathways

Convening Start Date

February 10, 2023


Pérez Art Museum Miami

On Friday, February 10, BTA will host its 2023 Convening: Forging Pathways at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

The third annual BTA Convening will highlight the ways trustees and museum leaders are sustaining Black representation on art museum boards and in executive leadership; and, cultivating future generations to continue the work. What has been done to date? What methods have been successful and should be replicated? How can we collaborate across institutions to amplify Black voices leading cultural institutions?

Portions of the 2023 Convening will be streamed for members.
