Reconsidering Museums Workshop

March 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Workshop Description

Reconsidering Museums is a national research and advocacy project exploring the role, value, and future of museums in Canada. The website and toolkit launched March 15,  2023. The resources developed through this project provide adaptable values-based messaging that bridges the gap between museums and their publics, substantiates the value of museums with data-driven insights, and helps shape public dialogue around the vital role of museums in our society.

Join us to learn more about the project and how the resources can help your museum better connect with and serve your communities, deepening your relationship, and therefore your relevance, to the Canadian public.

Powerpoint slides will be available in both English and French. This session will be recorded.
