Digital and Hybrid Event Training
For arts, culture, and heritage organizations.
Explore the possibilities of digital engagement in the arts, culture, and heritage sector with the BC Museums Association’s (BCMA) latest project, Heritage Online (HerO).
Consultation through HerO offers organizations the chance to improve their impact online. Our team leverages existing data, technologies, and abilities within an organization. We then find ways to navigate and harness digital landscapes, tools, and strategies for the long-term benefit of the organization.

Complete this survey to help us explore and improve sector specific training and project-based support for small, rural museums and Indigenous cultural centres. This information will increase our ability to harness digital landscapes, tools, and strategies for the long-term benefit of the sector.
Survey respondents will receive a free, one-hour consultation with BCMA Digital Strategy Coordinator, Koy Tayler to discuss their digital engagement needs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the need and desire for digital learning in the arts, culture, and heritage sector. Organizations continue to look for innovative ways to engage the public but need support to increase the accessibility and engagement of programming through online resources such as live-streamed events.
This year, the BCMA secured the necessary funds to kick-start a new project that will meet this need. HerO provides specialized training to increase the digital literacy of small, rural museums and Indigenous cultural centres.
Consultation continues as the BCMA team creates workshops and other resources to ensure this project meets specific needs and accessibility requirements. We look forward to developing additional resources and consulting services as part of HerO.
