Glenbow Museum Strategic Plan - 2011-2015 Standard PDF

Since Glenbow's inception in 1966, we have been a cultural cornerstone in the community, offering rich artistic and cultural experiences. Our region is evolving and growing, and it needs its cultural institutions to do the same. So in summer 2009, we began a comprehensive strategic planning process to re-invigorate the institution and ensure continued relevance and financial success. We've asked some tough questions of ourselves and met with our many stakeholders, partners and friends to hear what the community needs from us.

The result of this rigorous planning process is this strategic plan with six key priorities that provides a clear direction for Glenbow's future:

The ongoing dialogue between past, present and future is relevant to everyone. Glenbow's strategic plan reflects a more relevant and dynamic institution that will attract new and larger audiences who share our passion for arts and culture. This strategic plan will help us realize our new vision — more people interacting with art, culture and ideas more often. We hope our new vision inspires you to join us for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
