The Hamilton Area Museum Educators (HME) are pleased to announce their fall programming.
Their activities start with a new series, Drinking about Museums. Once a month, the HME invites anyone interested in learning and drinking to meet at a local brewery where a guest speaker will be featured through a short, informal talk. The rest of the evening will be devoted to relaxed discussion, the ability to engage the speaker on their chosen topic, and the chance to sample some local “liquid” arts (non-alcoholic beverages are also available)!
The first Drinking about Museums event will take place at Merit Brewing (107 James Street North) on Tuesday, September 24 from 6:30 – 8:30pm. This incredible event will feature Humber Galleries’ Danica Evering speaking to the topic of Unusual Suspects: Art’s Expanded Relevance! Reflecting on her experiences in attracting new and diverse audiences, Danica will discuss experimenting with language, intentional outreach and more.
The event is free, but an RSVP is recommended.
On Monday October 7, HME will host a fall mini conference at the Royal Botanical Gardens from 10am-3pm. This one day event will connect museum, gallery, historic home and parks colleagues from across the Hamilton area for a one-day free professional development experience. Space is limited, and more information on the conference, speakers and registration can be found on the HME website.
