Cultural Sites Program Review [expired]
Summary: Consultant Selection for Cultural Sites Program Review (No. : C2012-20) The Region of Waterloo owns and operates three museums dedicated to conserving and showcasing the history and culture of Waterloo Region. The Community Services Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of these community museums (herein referred to as “Cultural Sites”) - Waterloo Region Museum (including Doon Heritage Village), Joseph Schneider Haus and McDougall Cottage. • Waterloo Region Museum - The Waterloo Region Museum is the Region’s newest museum which showcases the history and development of Waterloo Region with interactive exhibits, a living history village (Doon Heritage Village) and storage and conservation facilities for artifacts. The museum opened its doors in May 2010 as the gateway to Doon Heritage Village. Exhibits opened in November 2011. • Joseph Schneider Haus - Kitchener's oldest dwelling, a farmhouse built by one of the region's first pioneers, has been restored and converted into a living history museum interpreting life in 1816, galleries, and a resource centre. It is a designated National Historic Site, with nationally-significant artifact collections. Its features include exhibits, lectures, workshops, curriculum-based education programs, weekend programs keyed to the season and a varied lineup of summer courses for children. • McDougall Cottage - This 1858 granite and limestone cottage on the bank of the Grand River was home for more than a century to hardworking Scots, and boasts hand-painted friezes and trompe l’oeil ceilings. The restored cottage hosts Scottish-themed workshops and exhibits, afternoon teas , and kitchen ceilidhs. With the addition of McDougall Cottage in 2002, reconstruction of several out-buildings at Joseph Schneider Haus, and construction of the 40,000 square foot museum building at the Waterloo Region Museum in 2011, the Cultural Sites Program (herein referred to as “Program”) has seen a significant expansion in its operations over the past decade. At the same time, there is a new recognition across the community of the importance of culture in supporting a vibrant community that can attract and retain talent. Museums therefore have an important role in economic development, and need to be well-connected with other organizations and initiatives. The Region’s Strategic Plan has an Objective to “Promote and enhance arts, culture and heritage”, with a specific action to “Provide opportunities to optimize the use of Regional cultural facilities, with a focus on the new Waterloo Region Museum.” For these reasons, a Program Review of the Cultural Sites Program will be undertaken in 2012-2013 with the purpose of assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of the services, organization, operations and resources of the Cultural Sites Program. The review will identify opportunities for improvement and a strategy for optimizing service delivery and organizational value while making the best use of resources. The review will also assess that the risks associated with the delivery of the program are being managed effectively.
