BC Museum Week: BCMA webinar, "For Future Consideration" (May 15, 2020)

For nearly two months museums across the country have shut their doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now as provinces prepare to reopen many museums are exploring what the future looks like for them. Join the BCMA, Jon Tupper (Art Gallery of Greater Victoria), Kate Kerr (Emily Carr House), Lisa Glandt (Archives Association of BC), and Tracy Calogheros (The Exploration Place)  for Museum Week, as we discuss the current climate our industry has found itself in and the pathways forward.

The webinar recording is available.

New publication!

“Value Study of GLAMs in Canada” a study commissioned  by the Canadian Museums Association (CMA) on behalf of the Ottawa Declaration Working Group. The research was conducted by Oxford Economics and was supported by Canadian Heritage, the McConnell Foundation, and Ms. Rosamund Ivey. This is the first time that a study of this scope—covering the entire GLAM sector—has been conducted in Canada. The study was published in December 2019.
