“I am honored to be at the helm of this important organization as we navigate the complex issues of our time; from the call to action on Truth and Reconciliation to the impacts of Climate change. As directors of art galleries and museums from across Canada we have privilege and the responsibility to lead some of our most important cultural institutions, and now more than ever, we need to do so with integrity and through a shared sense of authority with the communities we serve.” – Alexandra Badzak
