This interactive Zoom session for museum and gallery staff and volunteers builds on themes of intercultural competence, community engagement, and relationship-building, addressed in the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan’s presentation at last spring’s MAS Conference. The emphasis for this session is on participants' own experiences as we explore the success and challenges of integrating ethnocultural and newcomers organizations and individuals into museums and galleries.
