2015 Conference - Re-Defining Borders, Call for Proposals

Re-Defining Borders
Windsor, Ontario
November 4-6, 2015
Call for Proposals, Extended Deadline: March 13, 2015
Submit your proposal online here.


This year, in the dynamic border city of Windsor, Ontario, the conference will focus on the theme of Re-Defining Borders.

Borders can define us. Whether geo-political, cultural, or institutional, whether real or imagined, borders delineate where we start and where we end. But who gets to draw those lines and what do they really mean for museums and the work that we do?

The OMA invites proposals for conference sessions on the theme of Re-Defining Borders. Download the Call for Proposals Information sheet. [PDF]

OMA Launches Looking Ahead Initiative

Ontario museums are seizing the opportunity to build a strong, stable, united and relevant museum community for Ontarians. The objective of this initiative is to realize the full potential of a more collaborative, forward-looking and responsive museum sector for communities across the province.
