Canadian Museums Association National Conference
April 11, 2016 08:30 - April 15, 2016 17:00
Museums and galleries are valued public spaces that inspire, foster understanding and dialogue and encourage solutions for a better world. More than mere repositories — they host learning experiences, provide meeting places and are centres of community celebration. Museums offer unique dining and retail opportunities, provide social services and even a safe venue for a fun date night. However, foremost they continue to be the keepers of material evidence of human activity, and understanding and the natural world.
As museums seek new ways to become sustainable they must re-evaluate what they do to remain relevant. CMA 2016 Halifax will strive to bring together museums and gallery professionals with national and international speakers to create a dialogue about how, together, we can inspire solutions for a better world.
From around the corner to around the globe, CMA 2016 Halifax keynote speakers and educational sessions will strive to engage and deliver a program that shares innovative and workable solutions. The Conference will pose challenging questions providing delegates the opportunity to work creatively together so that positive change can have a lasting effect on policy, practice and ultimately sustainability.
