History is communicated through stories. In museums, artifacts can tell broad stories, but they also possess their own unique histories and refer back to different periods and people.
The Museum Collections webinar series explores the stories that are told through collections and artifacts.
By looking at collections from museums across Canada we hope to further understand the ways in which they communicate stories to the public. This webinar series features curators and other collections specialists and partners to understand how they decide what gets communicated through their objects.
The series is inspired by the 12th Canada’s History Forum “Small Stories, Big Ideas” which was held on January 19, 2020 at the Canadian Museum of History.
Wednesday, March 18th - 1:00 PM CT
