: “The conversation started two years ago, we really wanted to encourage interest to make those connections between Hawaiʻi’s natural and cultural history with local contemporary art,” says Brandon Bunag, acting vice president of public programs and director of education at Bishop Museum. “Art is a form of communication, art is a form of telling and transmitting stories, and that’s what we do at Bishop Museum.”

Bone Rooms — Samuel J. Redman

: “How did our museums become great storehouses of human remains? What have we learned from the skulls and bones of unburied dead? Bone Rooms (by Samuel J. Redman) chases answers to these questions through shifting ideas about race, anatomy, anthropology, and archaeology and helps explain recent ethical standards for the collection and display of human dead.”—Ann Fabian, author of The Skull Collectors

In the bone rooms of the Smithsonian Institution and other museums in the late nineteenth century, a scientific revolution was unfolding, as collectors engaged in a global competition to recover the best human skeletons, mummies, fossils. Study of these remains led to the discrediting of racial theo...

CONFERENCE SESSION: On the Horizon of 2021: Future Projects & Directions, Saturday, April 17, 2:15 - 3:15pm

https://hawaiimuseums.org/hmacon2021/

2020 has significantly changed how museums and like minded organizations operate their businesses. A new normal has emerged as organizations evaluate how their patrons can access their institutions safely into 2021 and beyond. What does access look like in this new normal? How have Hawaiiʻs organizations adapted to these changes? What projects are on the horizon and what future direction are these organizations navigating towards?

This panel features short videos produced by HMA members and Hawaiʻi’s museums and cultural centers, highlighting the important services that our island institutions continue to provide to our respective communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

CONFERENCE SESSION: Access During A Pandemic, Saturday, April 17, 1:00-2:00pm

https://hawaiimuseums.org/hmacon2021/

This panel will feature staff from Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives and Bishop Museum. They will discuss the considerations, adaptations, and transitions that occurred in programing and access during the course of the pandemic in 2020. The Hawaiian Mission Houses (HMH) expanded its digital footprint during the pandemic while also creating lasting content that can be repurposed into other aspects of virtual or online programming. HMH created “Connecting with History” a daily feature on the HMH website and social media. Through videos, at-home activities, use of archival materials and images, the HMH staff found new modes of engaging audiences and providing access to the historic houses and site during the pandemic.

https://hawaiimuseums.org/hmacon2021/

The philanthropy sector can be mysterious and intimidating and those professionals, the grant writers and administrators, who interact with grantmakers play integral roles as major fundraisers so their museums or learning and visitor centers can fulfill their missions and successfully operate. During this roundtable, philanthropy experts will discuss the business of grants, recent trends and initiatives in equitable grantmaking, the grant climate in Hawai‘i, among other topics. This session is ideal for beginners and experienced professionals.

Technology that brings us together virtually has grown by leaps and bounds during the current pandemic crisis. Many applications that were in heavy use in specialized fields came to the forefront of public consciousness or became the focal point of public connection once physical presence required limitation. This panel taps into some of those technologies and how they have been utilized by our fellow institutions.

Explore large-scale biocultural restoration and traditional resource management with Dr. Kawika Winter. Winter is the reserve manager at the He‘eia National Estuarine Research Reserve, located within the largest sheltered body of water in the Hawaiian Islands. The reserve protects unique ecosystems including the He‘eia Stream, coral reefs, sand flats, an ancient Hawaiian fishpond, as well as traditional agricultural and heritage lands. It is home to the endangered Hawaiian stilt, moorhen, coot, duck and hoary bat.
