 Map Gallery: Ideas Wanted 

Have you enjoyed past special exhibits in the Map Gallery, like the Monochrome Maps project, CIA Maps History, or even the tangible maps exhibit featuring a range of media? Maybe you’ve wondered where the special exhibits come from? Well, wonder no more – they happen when people contact the gallery coordinator and say, “I’d like to have some space for a special exhibit.” It’s just that easy!

If you’ve ever thought about curating your own mini gallery, now is your chance. We will have a large gallery space this year, which means we can accommodate more competition entries (hint, hint) but we’ll also have quite a bit of space for special exhibits. Contact Map Gallery coordinator Amy Rock with ideas or questions.


 Travel Grants 

Travel grants are available to support the attendance of students and professionals alike. Grant applications are now open. See our NACIS Travel Grants page for details. While there is no deadline for applications, grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis starting June 30, 2022.
