The Canadian Museums Association (CMA) is creating a consortium of museums that have experience working with Chinese museums and partners as well as those interested in international collaboration and partnership.

We invite museums, galleries and science centres with experience in China or aspirations to work in China, to join this informal consortium. We also invite companies and consultants to join.

This initiative will support the Canada-China Joint Initiatives and Agreements which was signed on February 2, 2018, between the Minister of Canadian Heritage and the Chinese Minister of Culture in Ottawa at the inaugural meeting. CMA is a partner to this agreement and has been invited to participate in the forthcoming Minister’s Trade Mission to China in April. CMA has also been invited to participate in a proposed memoranda of understanding with the Chinese government and other relevant parties.

The above consortium will:

  • Act as a clearing-house for projects
  • Share experiences working with Chinese partners including the culture of relationships
  • Share information and explore collaborations where appropriate
  • Raise the visibility of the museum/gallery/science centre sector
