Musée Héritage Museum, St. Albert
The recipient of the 2019
Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, the Musée
Héritage Museum, invites you to join them for the Social
Responsibility Workshop: A Recipe for "Social Soup."
The Musée Héritage Museum is the keeper of the history,
traditions, and heritage of St. Albert and district. Together with
the community, the museum builds knowledge, explores our
relationship with the natural environment, and celebrates historic
diversity. They work to accomplish this in a variety of ways:
exhibitions, access to archival material, school and community
programming, special events, and historical tours. In order to
serve and reflect the community, they intentionally encourage
professional development for staff members, bring in partners, and
build relationships, so as to continue to learn from others and
incorporate new stories and perspectives in all that they
"Our one-day workshop is a reflection of who we
are and how we do things, but the intent is to discover more about
you and your museum or other cultural organization where you
work. We want to share our recipe for 'Social Soup' with you
and are hoping that you might share your 'one-of-a-kind' recipes
Musée Héritage Museum
Bring your walking shoes, as you will wander through the community
of St. Albert to see the sites, meet the people, learn about the
history, and share stories of how and why everyone at the Musée
Héritage Museum is genuinely committed to serving the community in
unique and meaningful ways. Along the way, there will be
opportunities for discussion, sharing, hands-on learning, and
reflection, as well as lunch and laughter.
There is no specific recipe for social responsibility; instead,
it is the reflection of your unique museum and its people,
collections, mission statement, community, and history. We look
forward to meeting you!
