Venue

Museum of Vancouver + HR MacMillan Space Centre

The conference hub will be the stunning, award-winning building designed by architect Gerald Hamilton which houses the Museum of Vancouver (MOV) and H. R. MacMillan Science Centre.

WCFC2018 will use spaces in both institutions which are connected by a shared entrance and lobby.

The Museum of Vancouver is a unique and important historical venue.  Built for Canada’s centennial and opened in 1968, the building is one of Vancouver’s architectural gems, making it a one-of-kind venue.  Situated in Vanier Park near Kitsilano Beach, just minutes from downtown, the Museum boasts stellar views of English Bay, Stanley Park, and the North Shore mountains.  The Museum’s variety of special exhibitions and programs means there’s always an inspiring energy within its walls.

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is Vancouver’s astronomy museum.  Inside you will find live demonstrations on science in the GroundStation Canada Theatre, exhibits and games in the Cosmic Courtyard, and shows about astronomy in the Planetarium Star Theatre.  The Space Centre is named for H. R. MacMillan, a British Columbia industrialist and philanthropist.

It is a fitting place to gather fundraising professionals to share knowledge, build connections and plan for future success.
