The Millet & District Museum & Archives was excited to host the Sept. 6 meeting of the Central Alberta Regional Museums Network (CARMN).

Since 1994, CARMN has been a collective of about 40 community-based museums, working together to share knowledge and resources to strengthen all member museums so they can better serve their communities. CARMN members come from an area bounded roughly by Nordegg to Donalda, Devon to Calgary, and Rosebud to Banff.

As one member commented following the meeting, “Rural museums…need the opportunity to meet and spend time with people like you and your museums.  We can come home and look at our own museum with new eyes, to see how we can better utilize our space and present our artifacts.  I attended my first CARMN meeting about 20 years ago and had our museum join the group.  I felt then, and still do, that there is much to be gained by small rural museums communicating and working together as CARMN does.”

CARMN members were joined by Caroline Loewen of the Alberta Museums Association (AMA) promoting their national Reconsidering Museums project, of which the Millet Museum is a pilot site.

This session focused on gathering feedback on letter of support templates to help museums approach municipal governments and potential donors.
