SCFM 2022 – Call for Proposals

Embracing Change: The Persistence of Memory & Resilience”

Presented by Spartanburg County Historical Association

Spartanburg, SC March 16-18, 2022

Call for Proposals NOW OPEN!!

The SCFM Annual Conference is a time where we can celebrate the impact that museums have made on the state of South Carolina.  It’s a time where we can share our successes, learn from our challenges, and grow as museum professionals.  The past year and a half has been daunting and chaotic for many of us.  We’ve found ourselves having to pivot, reflecting on the past while forging forward into a new and often uncertain future.  This year’s conference will focus on how the museum field has embraced change and remained resilient while doing so. We look forward to being back together in person and welcome you to share your experiences by submitting a proposal to present at this year’s conference.
