QAHN "MATCH" Training Program Continues to Grow

Archival training session, Montreal.

--February 7, 2024.

QAHN's 3-year “Mentorship Assistance and Training for Community Heritage (MATCH)” program, funded by Quebec’s Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d'expression anglaise (SRQEA), continues to grow as it approaches the one-year mark.

According to QAHN executive director Matthew Farfan, “this project is all about providing training and mentorship to heritage groups traditionally connected with Quebec’s English-speaking community – the historical societies, museums, archives, and other community-based and usually volunteer-run heritage organizations that make up our heritage network.”

The types of training vary widely, and include areas as diverse as policy-writing, conservation techniques, exhibition design, recruiting volunteers, communications and marketing, digital and hybrid programming, oral history techniques, the ins and outs of accreditation, board leadership and succession, and so on. “Basically whatever area is in demand, we will find the trainers to meet that need.” 

QAHN's current roster of trainers includes Heather Darch, Fergus Keyes, Samuel Gaudreau-Lalande, Glenn Patterson, and Jody Robinson, among others.

QAHN veteran project director Dwane Wilkin has been leading this exciting new initiative as it approaches its one-year anniversary. If your organization would like to know more about how it can participate, please contact Dwane at: [email protected].
