The following information is excerpted from a call issued by the Vernon Museum.
If you're a museum educator, programmer or presenter working or living in the Interior of BC, you're invited to come to the first Idea Potluck on September 11 at the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives.
This will be an opportunity to get together to meet each other and discuss common issues. There will be no official presenters; rather, open table discussions to allow the sharing of experiences, successes, failures, and plans for the future. So, BYOI (Bring Your Own Ideas) and be prepared to leave with new ideas.
The event will be free except the cost of lunch (TBD).
10:00 - 10:15 a.m.: Introductions
10:15 - 11:15 p.m.: Discussion (New curriculum - challenges and strategies)
11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.: Discussion (Non-curriculum programming – community – adult - families)
12:15 - 12:45 p.m.: Lunch and museum walkabout
