The Ottawa Museum Network provides a strong voice for Ottawa’s community museums and a collaborative framework within which they can enhance their impact. Resiliency is at the heart of our organization.
During the beginning stages of the pandemic, our organization put into place tools and procedures that took care of the mental and physical well-being of our staff and members.
We hired three remote interns through Young Canada Works to advance program innovation support, collection digitization and digital strategy at member museums. Social media was utilized as a resource to lend even greater support to our members. In particular, we used our annual advertising campaign and social media platforms to support Vanier Museopark after the loss of their sugar shack in August 2020.
Looking ahead to 2021, we will continue to lead efforts to support the sustainability of our community museums!
