The Joint Conference brings together the culture and heritage sector for three days of conversation about breaking silos, stepping up as leaders in our communities, and recognizing our roles in decolonization.

Takeaways from the conference will include building strategies to make allies in local government, how to turn advocacy into leadership, and helping your communities address difficult histories.

Join us for thought-provoking discussion and collaboration that brings together museums, galleries, heritage sites, local governments, science centres, and Indigenous cultural organizations.
