Modelling What Works: Changing the World… One Community at a Time

How can museums actively engage with their community and work towards making real change? As integrated community institutions, museums are uniquely positioned to help create vibrant and sustainable communities through a focus on programs that affect real social and environmental change. What are the first steps in planning, maintaining, and strengthening these programs and relationships?

Join us Wednesday, May 13, 2015, as we investigate these questions through a one day workshop at Fort Calgary. As the recipient of the 2014 Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, Fort Calgary provides a successful model for engaging, maintaining, and increasing corporate sponsorship, and methods for connecting with and serving at risk communities.
