Program areas at IAAM

Museum planning - the department of Museum planning and operations is responsible for the development, management, and implementation of the Museum's capital program, building operations, and business initiatives. The director of Museum planning and operations coordinates the building construction, building upfit (artifacts; furniture, fixtures, and equipment, etc. ), occupancy, and staff move-in facilities, security, emergency preparedness, it, cafe, and store in close collaboration with the ceo, Museum staff, and capital partners. A key focus for the department is 'day one planning,' which reflects the integration of all Museum departments and operations with the construction timeline to ensure that the Museum is prepared to successfully operate on 'day one.'
Education and engagement - the department of education and engagement is focused on executing a robust and effective community engagement strategy that will enable the Museum to build authentic local, regional, national and International relationships and social capital with target audiences and advancing the Museum's overarching community relations. This suite of programming endeavors to advance the mission of the Museum while connecting the audiences to African and African American history and culture. The department is also engaged in developing content and foundational infrastructure for the Museum's education program.
Curatorial affairs - together, the chief curator, in partnership with the exhibit design partner, will strategically and thoughtfully craft every detail of the Museum experience. This includes all content and artifacts to be included in the Museum and its programming, and how they will be presented.
