Event description

Description

The John R. Park Homestead is launching a new, engaging program for area youth - The Junior Curator’s Club. The museum’s newest program is an interactive and exciting opportunity for young people, aged 11-14, interested in getting behind-the-scenes with Conservation and Cultural Heritage.

Junior Curators will delve into the museum world first-hand as they learn about the tools and practices of museum technicians at the award-winning Homestead. Through the four-week program, participants will hone their skills, which will culminate in curating their own exhibit. There will be an exclusive Exhibit Opening for family and friends at the final club meeting.

Registration includes:

  • Junior Curator’s Kit, including artifact-handling gloves, an archival quality pen, and other museum-quality items.
  • Hands-on experience practicing the techniques of museum curators in the 19 acre Park Family settlement on the shore of Lake Erie.
  • Homesteading Skills development including:blacksmithing, wood working, fireplace cooking, and more.

The program will take place from 1pm to 4pm on four consecutive Sundays in the month of October at the John R. Park Homestead Conservation Area. Cost for the four-week program is $100 and registration is limited to 15 participants. Pre-registration is required.

All participants must also submit a supplementary form online here.
