BC Museum Week: The Elephant in the Room: the Leadership Crisis in Canada's Cultural Sector

Friday, May 21st, 2021 10:00am – 11:30am PDT In the past year, there have been high-profile resignations and departures at some of Canada’s largest art galleries, museums, and cultural institutions. And in addition to the stories of toxic working environments and systemic racism that have been publicized, it is an open secret that many other stories have not yet come to light. It is undeniable that toxic leadership is common in Canada’s cultural sector, but what we can do about it? Join our cross-country panel as we discuss the leadership crisis in Canada’s cultural sector and explore how we can reject traditional leadership paradigms and create a more inclusive and just future. If we don’t address the elephant in the room, it’s not going to go away. This session is presented as part of BC Museums Week 2021.
