Community Speakers Program

Thank you for your interest in the Buffalo AKG Art Museum. To ensure the safety of our staff and audiences, we are not able to fulfill in-person speaking requests at this time. However, a staff member may be available to present virtually if their schedule permits.

Please submit your request for a speaker at least six weeks before your event date. Please note that requests for speakers are subject to staff availability and scheduling. For speaking engagements during regular business hours (Monday–Friday, 9 am–5 pm), the fee is $150. For evening and weekend events, the fee is $200.

To request a speaker for your event, please complete and submit the Community Speaker Request Form. Please read our Community Speakers Program Terms of Agreement before placing your request. After receiving your request, we will contact you in two to five business days to move forward with scheduling.

For more information, please contact Megan Woloszyn at 716.270.8336 or Communication by email is preferred and will facilitate a timely response.
