The Western Museums Association (WMA) is proud to present the first installment of videos from the first WestMusings | Ten Minute Museum Talks. This new programmatic feature took place at the 2013 Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City. Based on TED Talks’ model, WestMusings is an unconference program of short, rehearsed, and engaging presentations on museum related topics. WestMusings will provide an important platform for tomorrow’s museums leaders to speak today at Annual Meetings.
