THEMUSEUM presents A Cultural Exchange 3.0

Provincial Candidates to discuss arts and culture

Kitchener, ON- On June 4th 2014, THEMUSEUM will host an informal discussion involving provincial candidates, members of the public and local cultural organizations to discuss the future of arts and culture in Waterloo Region. Each candidate will be randomly selected and will have three minutes to share their vision of the future of arts and culture in our region.

This session will then be followed up by a seven minute round table exchange with visitors. Candidates will move on to the next table and another candidate will be selected to speak for three minutes. David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM will host and facilitate the discussion between the candidates and the general public.

This is THEMUSEUM’s third time hosting “A Cultural Exchange” and plans are already in place for Cultural Exchange 4.0 October 15th with Municipal Candidates. The events are meant to raise awareness and create discussions around the importance of arts and culture prior to the approaching provincial and municipal elections.
