The Council of American Jewish Museums is delighted to announce that it will be heading to Los Angeles for its next conference, The Creative Challenge: Museums for the Next Generation, scheduled for March 3-5, 2019. Chairs for the conference are Bryan Davis, Executive Director of the Jewish History Museum & Holocaust History Center in Tucson, and Gravity Goldberg, Director of Public Programs and Visitor Experience at The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

In addressing “The Creative Challenge,” we recognize that our museums serve many purposes. They are centers for memory, knowledge, and discourse, as well as sites of inspiration, gathering, and creativity. For Jewish museums in particular, fulfilling our creative potential while living up to our responsibilities can be complex. Yet within this challenge is an opportunity—an opportunity to deliver rich content while activating inventive approaches that draw on vibrant contemporary culture and thousands of years of Jewish creativity. 

The 2019 CAJM conference will explore “The Creative Challenge” from new vantage points. We will hear from museum innovators, artists, designers, dancers, writers, and rabbis as we explore possibilities that suggest a new museology.
