The Network - Future Plans

In terms of Regional Museum Grants Program projects, the focus on Exhibits is consistent with the projected phases when the program was first introduced. It is also significant that the first project focused on improving museums in all facets of museum activity. A museum professional was contracted to travel the Peace Region and assist each museum with whatever challenge whey were facing, which included collections, registration and management, proper handling and storage, display design, storyline development, marketing, etc.

The Phases of Our Historic Future have been as follows:

1. Structuring a Regional Network (1989-1994)

2. Regional Grant 1994

  • Peace Region: "Advancing Museum Standards." Project successfully completed in 1995.

3. Regional Grant 1995

  • Researching the Region: "A Sense of the Peace," by Roberta Hursey. Project successfully completed December, 1997.

4. Regional Grant 1996

  • Promotion of the Peace: "Discover the Spirit of the Peace," a 16 - minute video by Aquila Productions, Edmonton. Project successfully completed December 7, 1997. 

5. Regional Grant 1998

  • Exhibit for the Peace Country and beyond: "Treaty #8 Display and Promotion Project." Project successfully completed on March, 24, 2000 complete with curriculum based education kit for schools.
