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.
