BCMA is pleased to offer a regional workshop series each Spring.  Workshops are held in cities around the province.

January 22, 2019: On the Ground with Objects: Learning through Interaction at the Museum

Time: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 – 9:30a – 4pm 

Location:  Cumberland Museum & Archives, 2680 Dunsmuir Ave, Cumberland, BC V0R 1S0

Instructor:  Natalie Zacharewski


Are you looking for easy – and creative – ways to make your museum come to life?  Join the BCMA in a full-day workshop presented in partnership with the Cumberland Museum and Archives. Instructor Natalie Zacharewski will lead participants in a practical, hands-on workshop that introduces simple and easy-to-implement “object-based activities” into your gallery. Natalie is currently working on a Tool that will be incorporated into the BCMA’s Museum Programming Toolbox for Small Museums project. The focus of this workshop will be on providing participants with an overview of how to implement the Tool in their own museum setting. Participants will take-away practical ideas, templates and program plans for developing fun, immersive activities and programs that will make your museum come to life!

Upon registration, participants will be asked to complete a set of questions that will be compiled and forwarded to the instructor in advance of the workshop to ensure the workshop content is tailored to your needs.

Fee:  $40 (BCMA members); $90 (non-members)
