Launched last September, Her Story: Trailblazers of Guelph and Wellington County celebrates the trailblazing stories of local women. They are activists, artists, caregivers, health care workers, mothers, politicians, scientists, and writers, as well as women-led organizations. Our exhibition will close before the museum reopens, but the conversation, like the work of all trailblazers, continues.
At noon on Wednesday, Sept 15, visitor experiences assistant Emma Tennier-Stuart will host History Bites: From Trailblazers to Changemakers 2.0, a one-hour podcast-style conversation that extends the History Bites: From Trailblazers to Changemakers conversation that took place on July 21st. View the episode in advance here.
In History Bites: From Trailblazers to Changemakers, 2.0, visitor experience assistant Emma Tennier-Stuart interviews Kathryn Greenaway about her aunt, Florence Isabel Greenaway, a pioneering nurse working well ahead of her time, and local trailblazer, Alina Kislenko, about founding a groundbreaking mental health organization here in Guelph.
This event is free to enjoy, and will stream on our Facebook Live @guelphmuseums.
