Event description


The BC Museums Association is launching a new monthly webinar series in partnership with the Royal BC Museum! Join us on the third Tuesday of every month for insightful and informative presentations on a variety of topics, delivered by BC museum professionals and special guests.

This month: join Chris O’Connor, Learning Program Developer at the Royal BC Museum, and Susan Rome, the School Program Coordinator at the Vancouver Art Gallery, for “Youth Programming and What We Learn When We Listen.”

How can we better listen to the ideas and perspectives of youth in regard to our exhibitions and collections? And how can we facilitate youth making connections between the gallery/museum and the community in meaningful ways? Using case studies from the Vancouver Art Gallery (Think Tank for Youth) and the Royal BC Museum (The Partner School Project), this webinar will suggest ways to proactively invite teens into cultural spaces and have them learn through doing. #projectbasedlearning

BCMA members can attend these webinars for free. If you are not a member, consider joining and take advantage of our special 60th Anniversary membership deals: become a member here.

Webinars, what are those?

Webinars are online presentations with a host taking participants through a video and/or PowerPoint presentations.

What level of technology do I need to be able to attend?

The BCMA uses the Zoom.us webinar platform, which requires a plug-in download. Please allow plenty of time to download (which begins automatically when you click the webinar URL). Some organizations may require IT support/approvals, so consider trying this a day or two in advance.

The BCMA webinars are best experienced with a computer, a decent Internet connection, and a set of speakers or headphones. You DO NOT need a webcam or microphone to join the webinar. Tip: make sure you are in a space where you won't be disrupted or where you won't disrupt others (if you have your speakers on).

If I don't need a webcam, how can I ask questions?

Participants can engage with the webinar by using the chat function to ask questions and add comments. The webinar host will monitor all questions and

I'd rather not pay by credit card. Can you invoice me instead?

We are unable to invoice for this event. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

What's the refund policy?

Contact us at bcma@museumsassn.bc.ca. If cancellation is received more than 5 business days before event date, full refund is given less any EventBrite charges. If cancelled less than 5 business days before event date, refund is not given. In this case there are two options: you can either transfer your registration to someone else (see below) or, if there is a waiting list we may be able to transfer your registration to someone on this list in which case your account will be credited less any EventBrite charges.

Can I update my registration information?


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

For example, if you are a Member and you transfer your registration to a Non-Member, the $10 difference would need to be paid in order for the transfer to be valid.
