Looking Forward: Heritage Activities in 2013

My last post of 2012 looked back some of my favourite heritage experiences of 2012.  This post looks forward to 2013 and some of the heritage activities I'm excited about for the upcoming year.

  • The winter issue of the Public Historian contains a review I wrote about a walking tour in Milwaukee.
  • In April, I will be attending and presenting at the NCPH 2013 conference in Ottawa, Canada. Later in the month I will also be visiting Montreal for work. While in Montreal I hope to visit the McCord Museum and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.  
  • Singing with the community choir, in the historic 12-sided round barn in May.  It's great to see a heritage space being used by the community in so many diverse ways.
  • In late September/early October 2013 My partner and I are planning a trip to Ireland.  We haven't fully fleshed out what were are going to include in our trip -- but I'm sure it will include museums, built heritage, historic sites, and lots of natural heritage.
 I'm also looking forward to continuing to read and engage in activities for professional development.  In 2013, I hope to continue to strengthen my skill set with activities relating to exhibit development and records management.
