Call & Response: Querying the Collection
December 13, 2022 - July 17, 2023
Using a community-curation and crowd-sourcing framework, Guelph Museums’ invited members, volunteers, and staff to select an item from the museum’s collection for display. Call & Response: Querying the Collection highlights what they are most interested in and why.
Visitors to the museum are encouraged to respond to the items on display with their own reflections, experiences, and “queries”. Guests can share their impressions on our community corkboard or use our iPad portal to write directly to the Curatorial team.
Call & Response strives to connect artifacts to contemporary stories, shed light on the depth of Guelph Museums’ collection, and reveal gaps in our collecting narratives.
