2021 Montreal Conference
We are not static institutions; we are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our community and the collections we care for. At present, we are faced with formidable challenges and new frontiers: COVID-19, diversity, inclusion, experimentation, decolonization, cross-cultural understanding, new health and safety protocols, and the integration of current technologies. These developments, among others, are rooted in thoughtful, meaningful, and enduring change. As the guiding theme of the 2021 Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS) Biennial Conference, Evolution is an opportunity for our members to share and learn about the new ways the field is adapting our professional standards in response to the major cultural shifts happening worldwide. Please join us in this conversation.

Please note: Evolution will be a hybrid conference with onsite sessions and events, as well as virtual components. Though we hope to provide as many concrete details as possible, the conference structure is subject to change. The ARCS Conference Committee will follow all local, national, and international government guidelines and regulations concerning COVID-19. The safety of our members is our highest priority.
