November Event Program Details Announced!

The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) is excited to announce details of our November Event Program, the fourth and final event in our 50th Anniversary Conference Series!

With a special focus on the Conference's guiding pillar of Community, our November Event features a full afternoon of virtual learning, with opportunities for engaging discussions around reconciliation, digital innovation, and the value of museums to Canadians.

Learn more below about our virtual gathering on November 18.

About the Event

We are pleased to announce Jess and Matt Turtle, Co-founders of the Museum of Homelessness (MoH), as our November Keynote speakers! In their presentation, "Trauma, Healing, and Justice: Museum Essentials for the 21st Century," Jess and Matt will share their experience of trying to mediate and navigate increasingly complicated realities for people.

Founded in 2015, MoH is a community-driven social justice museum, created and run by people with direct experience of homelessness. MoH tackles homelessness and housing inequality by amplifying the voices of its community through research, events, workshops, campaigns, and exhibitions, and providing direct support - bursaries, mentoring, training and practical support - to its community members.

Join Jess and Matt as they address the fallout from the pandemic and transforming their small museum into a mutual aid operation in response to the events of 2020. They will explore how they did it, why there was a need for this response, and how their work was informed by their community.
