Share your story with us!

CAGE Case Studies provides an opportunity for our members to share their experiences, expertise, successes and challenges with colleagues from across the country. This year, our call for Case Studies invites you to present the results of a program, exhibition or initiative related to this year’s conference theme: Accessibility and Advocacy in Museums and Galleries.

Case studies will be presented at the 2017 CAGE Symposium, April 20-22 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. If your case study is selected, you will receive a discounted registration fee for the full conference of $320. Selected presenters should be prepared to give a 20 minute presentation on Saturday, April 22, with an additional 10 minutes for questions and discussion.


Submissions for Case Studies will be assessed informally by members of the CAGE Executive. The Executive will ask the following questions: Does the submission present an original and innovative program, initiative or exhibition? Does the submission share ideas applicable to institutions of all sizes and across the country? Does the project address the theme of accessibility and advocacy?

Submissions should be no more than 2 pages in length, and include the following:
— Project title and description of project (1 paragraph)
— Your contact information
— Profile of your gallery/museum (1 paragraph)
— Project dates
— Audience targets and learning goals
— Outcomes and evaluation (statistics where applicable)
— Resources (human, financial, technological, physical)
— What is one major recommendation that will benefit others planning a similar project?
