About this Event

Mid-America Arts Alliance’s Engage Program, in partnership with Texas Association of Museums, presents Shared Authority and Partnership in Nonprofits with Omar Eaton-Martinez. Join us to discuss the importance of co-stewarding stories and initiatives with communities that we serve. Eaton-Martinez will guide participants in identifying and cultivating partnerships, defining the differences between ownership versus stewardship, how to have a “seat at the table,” and being transparent about your expectations from partners.

Omar Eaton-Martinez leads the Prince George’s County Historical Resources Division of Maryland. This includes the historical house museums, an aviation museum, the Black History Program, and archaeological parks. He oversees the programming of those sites with an emphasis on preserving, sustaining, and enhancing these resources as well as engaging and building communities through education, outreach, and innovation. Most recently, Eaton-Martinez managed the interns and fellows program at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History (NMAH).
