In 2013, Huron County Museum completed a study and new strategic plan with an eye to increasing its capacity and improving its levels of public engagement. In 2014, the County of Huron completed a Municipal Cultural Plan which identified the Museum as a key cultural resource in Huron County. Both plans highlight the importance of fostering partnerships and collaborations within the sector in order to strengthen heritage and culture initiatives in Huron County. This session will discuss the Huron County Museum’s efforts to develop partnerships and collaborations with a broad range of community groups. We’ll talk about lessons learned and challenges faced as we have undergone the transformative process of becoming a responsive community resource. What have been the outcomes and what happens next?
