Museums Showoff TO, sister event to Museums Showoff in the UK, is a biweekly event for anyone interested in museums. Held every other Saturday at the Museum of Inuit Art from 2 - 4 PM, Museums Showoff TO features nine speakers who speak for nine minutes each on any topic related to museums: from collections to events to critical issues and everything else in between.
For each event, four speakers are invited, four spots are left open for anyone to sign-up online, and one spot is available for anyone to sign-up on-site. Each speaker gets nine minutes to discuss whatever museum-related topic they'd like, followed by plenty of time after the talks for discussion and collaboration. The only catch: speakers have to wait a month to sign up again.
Confirmed speakers will be posted shortly. Sign up to speak and join the conversation.
The event (and museum admission) is always free but a $5 donation is encouraged, which will be donated to a charity chosen at the event.
