On April 20th, the museum hosted the first ever Small Museum Forum. This forum aimed at gathering small museums from across the province to discuss issues concerning them such as funding, travelling displays and keeping up with social media. Overall, there were 28 participants representing 17 different institutions from all over Alberta.
After the success of the forum, it has been decided that the Northern Rockies Museum will be organizing the Small Museums Forum annually now-leading the way for small museums in the province. In addition to the forum, a blog is currently being developed to help share knowledge amongst small museums. Stay tuned for more information on this.
