Are Our Museums at Risk?
Discussions in the wake of the Brazil fire
The events in Brazil have sparked discussion within the museum sector in Canada and Ontario, in consideration of the risk to museums and their collections, and encourage best practices for the protection and safeguarding of our valued heritage and institutions.
Continued investment and support for future-ready museum buildings is essential to the sustainable preservation of Ontario’s cultural heritage. To strengthen our sector and achieve the goals set out in Ontario’s Museums 2025, museums in the province need to collaborate to build coordinated approaches to collecting.
