Museums and galleries are crucial venues that are an important part of the Canadian cultural heritage and dialogue. They are more than just archives of objects — they encourage learning, wonder and enrichment. Plank is a strong support of Culture and the Arts through active collaboration with client partners like Culture Days and the Juno Beach Centre.
Plank as a result chose to attend the Canadian Museum Association's National Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. As described in their own words:
"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."
We plan to participate yet again at the CMA National Conference in 2017 which will be held in Ottawa, ON.
