Since launching in 1999, Sharing the Museum has enabled over 275,000 vulnerable people to enjoy a broad range of free arts activities created just for them.
This program is the result of expertise-sharing between the MMFA’s teams and over 600 non-profit organizations, CLSCs and hospitals. It has constantly evolved and expanded to new audiences since its creation, and has become an international model for museum initiatives in accessibility and inclusion. It embodies the MMFA’s humanist and socially committed vision of a museum that is open and accessible to everyone.
Thanks to Bell’s renewed support through a major donation of $1 million over five years, even more people who are usually excluded from cultural experiences can enjoy the benefits of art.
