MAY 12, 2021 – ONLINE



On May 12th, 2021, Galeries Ontario / Ontario Galleries hosted a workshop on Boards, Acquisitions Committees, and Your Collections. The focus of this workshop was to help build more board literacy and open up the communication pathways between board members and staff. Ultimately giving participants tools, skills, and strategies to better serve their institution in order to see a holistic transformation.

This was a timely opportunity for board members and staff to participate together in a professional development program. It reflected and discussed many situations that institutions are currently undergoing surrounding board governance and responsibilities in art and cultural institutions in Canada and the United States. During this workshop, we discussed how a board could learn how to work collaboratively in a comprehensive way to advance the institution’s mission, vision, and mandate while starting to address systemic issues.

Sessions included:

  • Why the Make-Up of Your Board Matters for Your Collection
  • Your Board, Collections, and the Formation of Acquisition Committees
  • Board Governance and Leadership Programs and Pitfalls: Creating a Healthy and Supportive Board

Moderator: Robert Steven, President & CEO- Art Gallery of Burlington
Presenters:

  • Margaret Chrumka  – Executive Director, Kamloops Art Gallery
  • Nadia Bello, Director, Dean’s Office and Strategic Initiatives, Faculty of Community Services, Ryerson University
  • Michael Maynard, Board President at Art Gallery of Northumberland
  • Michelle Jacques, Chief Curator, Remai Modern
  • Hank Bull, Chair, Governance and Nominations Committee for the board of the Vancouver Art Gallery
  • Mike Murawski, Museum Consultant and author of Museums As Agents of Change
  • Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO, Winnipeg Art Gallery
  • Jan Allen, Independent Arts Advocate and Consultant
  • Clayton Windatt, Executive Director for ARCA & Trustee at National Gallery of Canada
