Museums and Galleries in Canada – Places for Discovery

Ever since I was very young, I have been drawn to history, fascinated by the stories of people and places around the world and close to home. In high school, my first visual art teacher opened my mind and my imagination to the great masters of art. I was captivated not just by their skill, but by their stories – their passions and motivations, how they were shaped by the forces around them. This is likely what drew me to complete an art history degree and later my Masters of Museum Studies. There, I discovered the powerful role that museums and galleries play in telling our stories, prompting people to come together to learn about our diverse histories and fueling critical and important debate.
