BC’s only provincial conference for museum, gallery and history professionals, BCMA Conference 2018 takes place in Kelowna!
Join us for the opportunity to network with hundreds of colleagues from across the province.

Whether you are a student or a mid-career professional, you’ll find much of value in the sessions and in your renewed/new connections with colleagues.
The 2018 conference theme is: Innovation and Technology: Keeping Pace with Acceleration.
Sessions will explore a range of topics, such as relationships with Indigenous and diverse communities, social justice through exhibitions and programming, and engaging diverse audiences through innovations and new technologies within museum, art gallery, and cultural centre practices.
