MANY’s October calendar is jam-packed with professional development opportunities, Meet-Ups, and special events across New York State.
We hope to see all of our members, guests, and cultural partners from the Adirondack region and beyond on Monday October 2 at The Wild Center for an exciting program featuring their new immersive sound experience, iForest, a demonstration of virtual reality applications by ADWorkshop, and a MANY Meet Up. Our Meet Up conversations this fall have been a wide-ranging exploration of the challenges we face in these changing times and the future of the museum field. Registration is still open; you can sign up by clicking here.
On Tuesday, October 10, the Greater Hudson Heritage Network’s 2017 conference and awards ceremony will be held at Bard College’s campus at Annandale-on-Hudson. This year’s theme is The Art of History and sessions will explore how the arts can enrich, renew, and inform our engagement with historic places and our relationship to the past.

Four more MANY Meet Ups fill up our October calendar with workshops, events, and discussions at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum of Art in Corning, the Roberson Museum and Science Center in Binghamton, The Rensselaer County Historical Society in Troy and the Vanderbilt Mansion, Museum, and Planetarium in Centerport. Humanities New York will be offering workshops at the Roberson and the Vanderbilt. Registration is filled for the glass workshop at the Corning Museum, but you can find out more about the workshops and Meet Ups and register on our website.
October is also the time to work on your MANY conference proposals! We will be announcing our Call for Proposals this week. Keep your eyes and your inbox open and don’t miss the chance to discuss Visioning Change in Rochester, April 8-10, 2018.
With many MANY thanks for all of your help with our Meet Ups and support of New York’s Museums,
