AKCHO is very pleased to announce that the keynote at our AKCHO Annual Meeting, on Tuesday, January 30, will be a panel examining the impact of Edward Curtis and exploring topics such as how photographs from an outsider can influence perceptions. The event also includes a short business meeting, updates on several local heritage initiatives around King County, and a luncheon. The meeting will be held at the Museum of Flight.

On the day of the meeting, doors open and check-in begins at 10 AM. The meeting will run from 10:30 AM – 1 PM. Following the lunch, everyone is welcome to self-tour the museum and / or attend the 4Culture Heritage Projects funding program workshop. The workshop will take place in the Lockwood Boardroom from 1 to 2 PM.
