The co-chairs of the Ottawa Declaration Working Group, Guy Berthiaume, Librarian and Archivist of Canada, and John McAvity, president of the Canadian Museum Association, invite you to participate in the second Summit, “Taking it to the Next Level: GLAM Summit 2018.”
Building on last year’s Summit on the Value of GLAMS, “Taking it to the Streets,” this year’s conference will be an interactive day of discussion drawing on the following themes:
- Communities: How can collaborative relationships among GLAMS benefit local communities, as well as provide greater opportunities for building links and fostering community identity?
- Indigenous peoples: How can GLAMs work more closely with Indigenous peoples to renew relationships that are based on mutual understanding and respect?
- Private sector: How can GLAMS work with the private sector to encourage greater innovation?
- Government priorities: How can GLAMS advance their interests vis-à-vis various levels of government?
Drawing from both panellists and participants, the “Taking it to the Next Level” Summit will develop a collective approach to strategic collaboration and visibility.
Speakers will include Senator Patricia E. Bovey, Daphne Wood (Greater Victoria Public Library), Robert Spickler (formerly of the Canadian Conference of the Arts), Andrea Cohen Barrack (TD Corporation) and Chris Kitzan (Canadian Aviation and Space Museum), among others.
Discussions will provide the opportunity to explore how GLAMS can demonstrate their value beyond the immediate sector.
This event is hosted by Library and Archives Canada.
