Heritage Online: BCMA Digital Capacity Audit

The BC Museums Association (BCMA) recognizes the continued need and desire for digital learning in the arts, culture, and heritage sector. Through Heritage Online (HerO), the BCMA offers organizations the chance to improve their impact online. 

Complete this survey to help us explore and improve sector specific training and project-based support for small, rural museums and Indigenous cultural centres. This information will increase our ability to harness digital landscapes, tools, and strategies for the long-term benefit of the sector. Survey respondents will receive a free, one-hour consultation with BCMA Digital Strategy Coordinator, Koy Tayler to discuss their digital engagement needs.
