Advocacy

ANSM champions museums in Nova Scotia through a number of important initiatives, most recently:

  • The establishment of the Muse Fund for Nova Scotia
    • Considerable donations garnered through the $100 from 100 Campaign enables ANSM to leverage substantial contributions from federal and provincial funding programs.
  • The establishment of a new Museum Evaluation Program for Nova Scotia
    • Evaluations are an important step in the the development of an Accreditation program for Nova Scotia’s museums for 2018.

ANSM Executive Director, Anita Price, maintains an active role meeting with senior government staff regarding museum related issues on a regular basis. She and Board members meet with government leaders to address topics related to ANSM’s activities as well as those of its member organisations.
