June 8th.- Tammy Adkin - Guelph Museum Director: Reconciling the Past. Reimagining the future
Presentation: This interesting talk will encompass expanding our understanding of the Guelph story through Guelph Museums & Culture.
Tammy Adkin has spent the last three decades helping people and organizations tell their stories. Since 2013, those stories have been about the fascinating people, places and events that have shaped the city of Guelph. As manager of Guelph Museums, she has worked with an accomplished team of curators, educators and researchers, to commemorate the worldwide impact of doctor, soldier and poet John McCrae; and to shine a light on the lesser-known but nevertheless important narratives that have influenced Guelph and the world. With a degree in Communication Studies from the University of Windsor, Tammy began her career as a journalist, before transitioning into progressively senior communication and management roles within the non-profit and private sectors. After working in the private and social service sectors, Tammy found her passion working in culture, beginning as Director of Marketing and Development, and later as Executive Director, for the London Regional Children’s Museum. Following time as Partnerships Manager at Museum London, Tammy joined the team at Guelph Museums, overseeing the municipality’s museums including Guelph Civic Museum, McCrae House National Historic Site, and Locomotive 6167. An enthusiastic supporter of community engagement, Tammy has served in a volunteer capacity as president of the Ontario Museum Association, the president of the Canadian Association of Science Centres, founding chairperson of the St. Andre Bessette Trust Fund, and executive committee for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum.
