Launching late summer

Learn digital team communication and collaboration strategies that work from the BC Museums Association team.

If the past three years have shown us anything, it's that effective online team communication and supportive remote working environments have tremendous benefits for arts, culture, and heritage organizations. Join the BCMA team as we reflect on how we work together as a fully remote workplace and learn what has worked for us, what hasn't, and how even a fully in-person team can benefit from effective online communication.
