NEMA Conference

NEMA is holding its 101st conference in Burlington, Vermont, from 6 – 8 November. Here, GSM Project will be contributing to a session entitled ‘Intangible Histories – Making Meaning from Memory.’ This will look at how museums can be more inclusive by sharing a wider range of stories through a variety of different mediums. For example, oral history, personal artefacts, conservation of traditional practices, and sharing through experience.

The panel will feature professionals from the Rokeby Museum, the Florence Griswold Museum, and GSM Project. Between them, they will explore techniques for sharing intangible histories and creating meaning out of the memories and stories of individuals.

It will be facilitated by Erika Kiessner, Creative Director, GSM Project. The speakers will be Marie-Claude Baillargeon, Designer, GSM Project, David Rau, Director of Education and Outreach, Florence Griswold Museum and Jane Williamson, Director Emerita, Rokeby Museum.
