Request for Proposals: Consultant

 

The Museums Association of Saskatchewan is seeking a consultant to research and write a tip-sheet regarding the theme Mission-Based Programming.  Through examining what types of programming that they provide (specifically school programming and public outreach), museums should reflect their institution’s mandate while adhering to the Standards for Saskatchewan Museums.

 

Approximately 1,700 words, the tip-sheet should include an overview of why a museum would link programming to their mission, as well as the establishing of policies and procedures and important concepts to keep in mind when planning a program.  A bibliography and additional resources shall be included to direct advanced learners.  Images or diagrams are encouraged to make the tip-sheet more visually appealing; any image or diagrams will be obtained following copyright law and are of the best quality.

 

The tip-sheet will be made available to Association members in print and online.  While not exclusive to any type of readership, the tip-sheet will be predominantly directed towards community museums staffed by volunteers.

 

Previous projects of this nature can be found on the Association’s website at www.saskmuseums.org under Resources.

·      Current CV

Request for Proposals: Consultant

 

The Museums Association of Saskatchewan is seeking a consultant to research and write a tip-sheet regarding the theme Mission-Based Exhibitions.  The tip-sheet shall examine what types of exhibits that museums host for the public (or create themselves), museums should reflect their institution’s mandate while adhering to the Standards for Saskatchewan Museums.

A bibliography and additional resources shall be included to direct advanced learners.  Images or diagrams are encouraged to make the tip-sheet more visually appealing; any image or diagrams will be obtained following copyright law and are of the best quality. Situational examples are welcome to illustrate concepts.

 

The tip-sheet will be made available to Association members in print and online.  While not exclusive to any type of readership, the tip-sheet will be predominantly directed towards community museums staffed by volunteers.
