National Museum launches new education programme
The National Museum of Bermuda is calling on people to sign up to a new education programme – which will end with them giving a tour of the site.
The free initiative consists of four interactive workshops led by Janet Ferguson, the former executive director of the Bermuda College’s lifelong learning centre and chair of NMB’s education committee.
Dr Ferguson said: “The participatory museum has emerged as a site of transformative lifelong learning.
“This ambassador programme introduces an exciting object-based approach to critical engagement with and across multiple historical and contemporary narratives.”
The workshops will be held on March 28, March 30, April 4 and April 6, from 9.30am to 1.30pm each day.
Participants will first explore different learning styles and then learn about the museum’s layout, history and significance.
The programme, which is only for adults, will end with attendees applying what they learned to give their own tour of the facilities.
NMB executive director Elena Strong said: “This programme is part of our lifelong initiatives so more people can deepen their understanding of Bermuda’s history and learn more about the essential role that museums play in our community.”
The programme will accept 20 participants who can register at www.nmb.bm/ambassadors.
