Session Description

Words like paradigm shift, sea change, and transformation come to mind when youth invade our museums.

Want to get on the youth bandwagon or be part of the information sharing of this project? Get the latest buzz on the Canadian Museums and Youth Diversity Project, funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada's Inter-Action program. This 3 year project aims to develop sustainable youth programming that also supports the integration of newcomer youth into their communities. Find out how youth programs such as oral history projects, exhibits, and live performance, are reshaping a handful of Ontario museums, shaking up museum worker perspectives, and forging stronger community partnerships.
