Webinar: Institutes and Advocacy

July 14, 2020

The BCMA and Heritage BC celebrated Advocacy Week in July 2020.

Advocacy, research, and communications build awareness about the value and impacts of our museums and BC’s cultural sector among policymakers and the general public. Advocacy can be carried out by institutes large and small and through various initiatives.

The BCMA invited Peter Garnham (Sidney Museum), Sarah Gamble (Tumbler Ridge Geopark), and Stephanie Halapija (Gulf of Georgia Cannery) for a panel discussion. We unpacked advocacy at a museum level, dove into what these initiatives can look like, and explored some tips and tricks.
