On Sunday, March 26, 2017, the Emerging Museum Professionals Committee (of the Museum Council of Greater Philadelphia) will be hosting a one-day meeting entitled What’s Next. The goal of What’s Next is to guide undergraduate students, graduate students, young professionals, and professionals looking to enter the museum field through the process of finding work in a museum.
What’s Next is an excellent opportunity to reach those seeking career advice, graduate school information, and financial consultation as they take the next steps in their professional lives.

Free workshop. If you’re a student of the arts or humanities and a well-meaning relative has ever asked “what are you going to do with that?” this event is for you. Five panelists working in educational nonprofits, arts advocacy organizations, archives, and bookstores will speak to what it’s like to build a career outside the university that still privileges the ideas and values of the liberal arts.
Discussion will begin at 4:30. Join us before the panel at 3:30 for a networking reception with our panelists. @ the Writers House 305 Cooper Street March 8, 2017 3:30 pm-6:00 pm
