La politique de l'emploi comme instrument de politique culturelle implicite

le cas des musées communautaires du Nouveau-Brunswick

  • Robin Nelson


In 2002, the New Brunswick government developed a cultural policy of unprecedented scale for the province. This policy aimed to respond to the challenges of community museums. Among the challenges identified were the need for professional development, financial stability and visibility in their communities. This article examines how this ambitious strategy for the cultural sector has encountered pathways dynamics and the effects of other public policies. Based on an analysis of the sector and its evolution following the implementation of the cultural policy, this article relates the unsuspected effects of the program Student Employment Experience Development (SEED), a program related to the politics of training and employment in the province.
