The 2-day program of the 2017 Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum will occur at 2 venues across the road from each other in National Capital Region of Canada, Ottawa-Gatineau.
Our Plenary and Poster Venue will be in the auditorium space of the Canadian Museum of History. This is an incredible building designed by Douglas Cardinal. It is THE most visited museum in Canada.
Thursday has free admission – one of the little perks we included in the design of the Forum this year.
In addition to its ongoing exhibitions, including the spectacular Grand Hall and First Peoples Hall, each year the Museum presents a number of outstanding exhibitions focusing on Canadian and world history and civilizations. These exhibitions include those developed by the Museum as well as many produced by other Canadian or international institutions. The Museum is also home to the Canadian Children’s Museum, a 500-seat theatre and the CINÉ+, a 295-seat movie theatre equipped with a giant 3D screen and a giant dome. Online, the Canadian Museum of History presents a number of excellent virtual exhibitions, including the Virtual Museum of Canada and the Virtual Museum of New France.
The Breakout Rooms Venue is in the historical section of the Four-Points by Sheraton Gatineau – the same venue that we have reserved for accommodations.
We have reserved 4-5 mid-size rooms to allow for presentations, workshops, and open space conversations
