All Rights Reserved. Hard Bound. You, of all people, know that there is an emotion, a visceral response that happens when you come in contact with an original document that nothing can replace. This is a key driver behind our efforts to display our collection at museums and galleries as often and as widely as we can. Unfortunately, many of the new initiatives I mentioned are virtually unknown to the political, economic and media elites, because they spend very little time in GLAMs, those who purchase rather than borrow, and whose economic status means that free services are not really necessary.

Cultural consumption for these groups has a very different meaning than it does for most of the Canadian population, yet these are often the people we need to reach to demonstrate our value. I think this is yet another challenge we can meet by working side by side, and not in separate camps. This is a little-heralded role of the GLAMs, which are often seen as being simply the final resting places for finished creative work.
We created a Twitter hashtag known as LAC Muse to let artists tell us how they have used our collections to realize their creative projects, and the results have been remarkable.

One of the liveliest presenters at the summit was Derek Kwan, an actor and creator from Vancouver. It gave him the space to collaborate, access to state-of-the-art equipment and, of course, inspiration. As a result of its success, he was one of 15 filmmakers from across Canada invited to be part of a CBC development workshop. Here is an example of his wearable art—an exclusive Canada Goose parka that combines fine arts, design and computer programming.
There are numerous other examples at LAC—examples that show how raw material from our collection takes on a second life through the creative interpretation of artists from all disciplines. Or Frances Itani, who spent six months in the library and archives researching a novel called Deafening , which went on to be published in 16 countries. She spent an entire week in our building listening to recordings of songs from the First World War, conjuring up the times in a way only music can.
She took hundreds of brass fasteners—all removed by hand from the service files of the Canadian soldiers who served in the First World War—and created a unique and moving installation called Detachment. Detachment is a series of star charts showing how the night sky would have looked over the sites of several major battles in that war, including Vimy and Passchendaele. You will remember that Canadian Heritage held public consultations over the last 18 months on how to strengthen Canadian content in a digital world.
Arguably, the GLAM sector is part of all three pillars. But I think pillar one is best aligned with the principles of the Ottawa Declaration. If we invest in creators so they can come up with the best ideas, enabling them to conquer domestic and foreign markets, GLAMs and the power they have to inspire must be seen as part of this very first pillar. Based on a shared recognition of how much we have in common, and how great it would be to work together. Increase collaboration between our institutions to catalyze new partnerships that spark creativity and enhance engagement;.
Develop innovative programs and services to empower us to engage our publics; and. Enrich and expand access to our collections to ensure we contribute significantly to the public good and sustainable development. Our six members, with expertise from across the GLAM sector, have a mandate to flesh out the vision of the Ottawa Declaration.
This 5 to 1 ratio is similar in Canada, according to recent studies done for the Toronto Public Libraries and the Ottawa Public Libraries. But—to the best of the collective knowledge of the working group—there has never been a study on the value of the whole GLAM sector. So we are working on scoping out what such a study should look like so that we encompass the reality of all types of memory institutions. We started the work by developing an inventory of examples where institutions from the GLAM sector have successfully engaged with organizations outside the sector, for instance performing arts institutions.
The Canadian Urban Libraries Council had surveyed its members on this very subject last summer, so we are using their results to expand and include museums, galleries and archives. Our goal is to explore the gaps and potential need for a national cultural policy in which the GLAMs would play a key role. In each of the five countries we surveyed, there are driving factors that influence their approach to policy development, and they include collaboration, inclusion and access.
I mention them here because both documents contain a strong commitment to being inclusive, and to serving diverse communities, qualities that were found in our environmental scan and that we also emphasized during the December summit. Both documents support creativity and innovation, as well as partnership and collaboration in education as well as in the government, not-for-profit and private sectors.
And they both highlight the need to demonstrate the social and the economic value of culture and cultural organizations, and their key role in the creative economy. We are looking for input on possible speakers, especially to present the point of view of our partners outside the GLAM sector the private and not-for-profit sectors, communities, government and Indigenous peoples.

Imagine heading out for a night of theatre, the ballet, or the opera. And finding only dark, empty stages. Imagine galleries with no art. And museums with no artifacts or historical documents. In other words, imagine a country with no culture. No history.
No identity. So, why are we still working so hard to justify our existence as cultural institutions?
People ask: In a society where digital access is everywhere, why should we build new libraries? The proposal has generated a lot of discussion, most of it positive. Be cheaper to buy everyone a kindle or a smart phone. Why a big place? No one reads books. But the reality is counterintuitive. So, more people than ever are visiting memory institutions. Go figure. More collaborations, more partnerships, more public outreach, more relevance. More with more. Which brings me to another good example of doing more with more.
To explore, identify, share and consider new ways to work together. One of the most important conclusions we reached was that technology is not our enemy. Technology, which allows us to reach our users where they are, which is mostly online. But there are challenges, too. Our galleries, our libraries, our archives and our museums. The GLAMs have to do both. Our own DigiLab is a good example of this dual approach, and one I am quite proud of. Researchers now have direct access to high-performance scanners, computers and other tools.
Things like records that track the rain, thunder and lightning over Ottawa in the 19th century… …which contribute to the study of climate change.
