2011 Annual Conference
Pooling Our Resources: Collaboration and Connections
Museum Association of Arizona’s 29th Annual Meeting
April 13 – 16, 2011
Individually we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.
-- Ryunosuke Satoro
Two heads are better than one…many hands make light work…the whole is more than a sum of its parts…all these old axioms enthusiastically tout the benefits of teamwork, partnership, and collaboration. Pooling our resources optimizes services, broadens access to community support, provides an ever-larger audience for partnering institutions, and helps to preserve our cultural heritage. And, in this age of specialization, collaboration between organizations brings varied skill-sets together to create innovative solutions.
Museums and other institutions are rising to today’s challenges by devising innovative partnering methods to deliver information, maintain collections, and create joint-use facilities - to list just a few collaborative efforts.
