American Alliance of Museums (Arlington, VA 22202-4804)
Cecelia Walls (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
AAM Resources & Initiatives in Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic

The retention of four staff members and a consultant for the development of online resources supporting museums as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

AAM has taken a leadership role in the field and among our allied museum associations to support museums in this challenging time, so they in turn can serve the public. This project aims to sustain vital support to museums through resources around reopening, financial sustainability, equity in times of crisis, and more. Public-facing museums will be vital to the nation’s recovery—and the recovery of communities across the country. As places of inspiration and hope, gathering, and education—and among the nation’s most trusted resources—museums will, once again, bring people together, encourage travel and exploration, educate the public, and help to address/avoid xenophobia and other potential negative outcomes of this scary time for many. We must support museums through this public health and economic crisis. AAM is recognized by many as vital to supporting museums. Through this project, AAM is coordinating with allies to identify and anticipate needs and disseminate resources broadly.
