Event description

Description

Myseum of Toronto celebrates the reality that our city is the exhibit, but how would you go about putting it on display? Meet us in the archives, where curator, author, exhibit producer, and longtime Myseum collaborator John Summers will share his thoughts, and hear yours, on various approaches to curating the city.


Meet John Summers:

Drawing on more than two decades of work at cultural institutions in Canada and the United States, John Summers brings a wide variety of skills and perspectives to curating collections and planning and designing museum exhibits. He is Manager of Heritage Services and Curator for the Regional Municipality of Halton, where he leads, develops, designs and fabricates exhibit projects. He has taught students about museology, material culture studies, museums and technology and exhibition planning and design for the Ontario Museum Association, the Fleming College Museum Management and Curatorship Program, the University of Victoria’s Cultural Resource Management Program and the University of Toronto’s iSchool, where he is a Sessional Lecturer in the Master of Museum Studies Program. He is currently writing a book for the American Association for State and Local History about exhibit planning and design for museums and historical organizations.


Presented quarterly by Myseum of Toronto, MyseumConnects is a free networking event for professionals in arts, culture, and heritage. Establish relevant and rewarding connections with other professionals who are passionate about activating Toronto’s cultural sector, and discover unexpected connections and opportunities for collaboration.
