Speaker/s Name: Kate Butler (Museum Director, Haliburton Highlands Museum)
Visitors to the Haliburton Highlands Museum have long been telling staff that there were many traditional skills they wished they had learned from parents and grandparents. In this session, you’ll learn about the innovative mentorship program we implemented to address this need, partnering seniors and children in our community. Kate Butler will share the lessons we learned along the way and the adventures we had (including babysitting bees and emergency crafting lessons), as well as how this sort of rewarding program can be adapted to a museum of any size, including yours!
