Showcase your community’s arts, culture, and heritage to museum professionals from every corner of the province by hosting the BC Museums Association’s Annual Conference.

Each October the BC Museums Association (BCMA) holds an internationally-recognized provincial conference in a British Columbia community, bringing together hundreds of museum, heritage, arts, and cultural experts for three days of learning, networking, and exploration.   Hosting communities have the opportunity to showcase the innovative work of their museum, gallery, archive, heritage and related sectors, gaining great exposure with many of the province’s leading cultural heritage experts.   If you are interested in celebrating your community’s cultural heritage and attracting 200-300 conference delegates, we are looking for our next communities to host the BCMA’s 2021, 2022, and 2023 annual conferences.

We also encourage partner organizations (i.e. other provincial/territorial museum associations, GLAM-sector partners, international museum associations) to submit proposals for a joint or collaborative annual conference. The BCMA is also open to new conference ideas, formats, and opportunities. We encourage creative and innovative proposals.
