Join the BCMA for a read-along of the Canadian Museum Associations Moved to Action: Activating UNDRIP report.

In the winter session, Book Club participants will read the Canadian Museum Association’s Moved to Action: Activating UNDRIP in Canadian Museums. This report was released on October 27th as a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action number 67. Moved to Action reviews the historical context relationships between Indigenous peoples and museums, and suggests new standards for museums to achieve UNDRIP compliance. This includes sections covering collections management, engagement and partnerships, governances and operations.

Over eight sessions, participants will read through Honouring the Truth and Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the TRC alongside BCMA team members, Lorenda and Leia. The purpose of this series of online discussions is to be part of cultural heritage professionals’ decolonization efforts and to utilize existing resources. Education on topics and histories resulting from colonialism is critical if the sector is to move forward in reconciliation.
