Breakout sessions run the gamut from new ways to engage children to touring with battle-scarred veterans and visitors with little or no eyesight.
Our closing speaker will send you home with new ideas. She is JiaJia Fei, digital coordinator of New York's Jewish Museum, who has given TED talks on the effect of social media.
We're going to love to show you our city. Come before the symposium starts, and take tours of one of the most sophisticated cities in North America. The off-site workshops during the symposium range from art, design and architecture galleries to a museum on top of an archeological site of 375-year-old Montreal itself.
You will dine well every night — at our own museum, with its five pavilions and world-class collection, at Le Windsor Ballroom in the heart of the city, and at the spectacular Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. And you will receive a warm welcome from Nathalie Bondil, Director and Chief Curator of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
See you soon. Or, as we say in Montreal, à bientôt!
