DESCRIPTION

Speaker/s Name: Arlene Chan (Tour Guide, Toronto Ward Museum), Anja Hamilton (Programming Coordinator, Toronto Ward Museum) Shared authority and inclusive storytelling are guiding principles of the Ward Museum, a museum without walls dedicated to telling stories of migration to Toronto. Since its inception, the Museum has been supported by a network of institutional partners from four different sectors, working to give local residents the opportunity to co-develop and co-deliver the museum’s programming. This presentation will speak to the ethical necessity and importance of sharing authority within museums, as well as exploring the experience of Arlene Chan, one of the guides and storytellers on the Museum’s Dishing Up Toronto tours.
