The National Conference Planning Committee invites you to create a bold vision for Canadian museums and their impact — the difference museums can have on communities, society and the environment by submitting a session proposal by June 14, 2019
The National Conference Planning Committee is seeking session and workshop proposals that challenge delegates to think outside of the box, to explore off the beaten track, to take a risk. Proposals should delve deeply into issues or trends, challenge the status quo, explore real and scalable solutions, are candid about lessons learned, and feature compelling presenters. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a dynamic convening of Canadian museum professionals.
Our objective is to provide inspiration and ideas for museums, and to help museums with their thinking and planning. In doing so we aim to assist them to realize their full potential for society.
Successful proposals will address the conference theme and offer innovative approaches to issues that will apply to a broad range of cultural institutions. We encourage you to share your successes and constructive failures with your colleagues. What can we learn from your institution and others you know of, that demonstrate strong collaborations and/or original and inventive solutions?
Take advantage of new learning formats and think creatively as you develop your proposal to share your vision and ignite conversation.
Let’s explore how and why museums are the future. Please join us in April, 2020 as we celebrate the strength of the Canadian museum community and explore Vision 2020!
Yours in museums,
