Learning opportunities may also arise through attendance at lectures, workshops, and events related to arts programming at Banff Centre. Participants will also have the opportunity to work on personal research activities as outlined in their learning objectives and project proposal.

Who should apply?

Practicum placements are appropriate for recent graduates of Master of Archival studies programs or Master in Library and Information Science programs, with an interest in archival work.
