BCMA is thrilled to announce that BC’s only provincial conference focused on museum, gallery and history professionals is coming to Prince George this year! BCMA Conference 2019 takes place on September 30 to October 2 at the Courtyard Marriott, as well as at Two Rivers Gallery and The Exploration Place.
We would like to invite you to once again join us for the opportunity to network and connect with hundreds of colleagues in your field 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 2019 BC Museums Association Conference will be held on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, whose name in the Dakelh language means “people of the confluence of two rivers”. Celebrate the role museums play in connecting people through language and story with this year’s theme, Spoken Words, Shared Stories. The theme acknowledges the importance of the International Year of Indigenous Languages, explores how museums can become involved in language revitalization, and allows for discussion on how our organizations use stories to communicate, educate, and encourage social interactions.
Come and enjoy a selection of relatable workshops, valuable presentations, and exciting networking opportunities.
