Using data from the Canadians' Arts, Culture, and Heritage Participation in 2016 report, Kelly Hill, of Hill Strategies, will demonstrate how museums can use Canada-wide indicators of arts, culture, and heritage participation; arts attendance rates; and active arts participation to advocate for their institutions. Data from across the arts will allow attendees from all subsectors to see themselves as part of an interconnected ecosystem.


Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of how Canadian's value arts and heritage via participation rates, and inspire cross-sector collaboration as way to increase sustainability, relevance, and public value.
