OMA-OAAG Webinar - Scenario Planning

OMA-OAAG Webinar - Scenario Planning

Presented in partnership with the Ontario Association of Art Galleries


In this time of extreme uncertainty, scenario planning offers a methodology for thinking about what might happen so that organizations can prepare for a range of possibilities. Usually, when we plan for the future, we have a pretty good idea of what the world looks like: our purpose, our facility, our collection, our funding, our employees, our visitors are all at least somewhat predictable. The pandemic, social distancing and the resulting economic impacts, and the demands for true social change all require us to set aside those predictions and assumptions.

Judy Wolfe and Karen Wishart of Consulting Matrix will facilitate a small group of sector leaders while other participants observe the process. Observing participants will be able to ask questions of the panelists as they work through the agenda and scenario planning.

  • Demetra Christakos, Art Gallery of Sudbury
  • Alexander Gates, Canadian Automotive Museum
  • Brian Meehan, Museum London
  • Janis Monture, Woodland Cultural Centre

Participants will learn how to plan for the long-term under extreme uncertainty and imagine possible futures.
