The Digital Divide
Are Canadian museums embracing digital or anxious about change?
Plank was proud to attend the annual Canadian Museum Association's National Conference, held at the The Westin Nova Scotian.
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.
