Remembering Tragedy
Speakers discuss the challenges faced and insights gained by engaging with tragedy in museum curation and outreach.
Headshots: Gabrielle Major and Chris Selman
Preserving Tragedy:
Negotiating the Collecting of Spontaneous Memorials

Speakers (from left): Gabrielle Major, Registrar, and Chris Selman, Assistant Registrar, City of Toronto Museums and Heritage

Collecting meaningful objects that reflect the communities we represent is a cornerstone of museological work. Unfortunately, this can include materials pertaining to tragedy. Museums are increasingly being asked to preserve objects related to traumatic events.  Using two case studies we discuss practical and theoretical considerations of collecting from spontaneous memorials. 

Headshots: Anna Patterson and Robert Bell
Finding Hazel:
Tragedy, Community, and Education

Speakers (from left): Anna Patterson, Education, Events, and Volunteer Coordinator, Dundas Museum and Archives, and Robert Bell, Dundas Central Public School

To mark the centenary of the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic, Dundas Museum and Archives, Dundas Central Public School, McMaster University, Knox Presbyterian Church, and many passionate individuals, worked together to provide resources, experiences, and support for students as they curated their community exhibit, “Finding Hazel: Who Was Hazel Layden?”
