What does community engagement mean to you and are you doing it? The Ontario Museum Association’s museumsuccession project has released a dynamic new toolkit to help museums explore and evaluate their relationship with their community. Engaging your Community: A Toolkit for Museums takes your museum step-by-step through a community-based process of assessing your museum’s strengths and weaknesses and stimulating discussion on ways to increase your museum’s engagement potential. Join a panel of museum professionals who have worked through this toolkit as they discuss how it helped them to re-de ne their public value.
