Upcoming conference offers training for educators

January 24, 2019 by  

The 3rd Lower Mainland Museum Educators Conference is being held at the end of this month in New Westminster.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Change Makers and Space Makers’ and it is aimed at staff of museums, science centers, art galleries and other facilities for art education. It is hoped they learn from the strategies of professionals in their field.

The day will start off with a welcome with coffee and snacks where attendees can mingle with their peers and possibly exchange business cards. It will be followed by a keynote address by Don Enright, who is a visitor experience specialist.

Later on, there will be a number of breakout sessions and workshops. Topics of discussion are expected to include perfect programming, symbiosis with the community, diversity, and STEAM education.

Free snacks and coffee will be provided throughout the day, which is set to finish off with a social event at the Fraser River Discover Centre from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.

Flyer printing companies are often hired to provide advertising materials that can be inexpensively and quickly distributed to nearby communities such as Delta.

The Lower Mainland Museum Educators Conference will be held at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster on January 28 from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Conference fees are $32 per person. For the most current information, visit the official event website.
