Join the Musée Héritage Museum, the 2019 recipient of the Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 22, for "Social Soup: Building Knowledge and Relationships with Community and the Natural Environment." The Musée Héritage Museum is the keeper of the history, traditions, and heritage of St. Albert and district. Together with the community, the museum builds knowledge, explores relationships with the natural environment, and celebrates historic diversity. In order to serve and reflect their community, the museum intentionally encourages professional development for staff members, brings in partners, and builds relationships so that they can continue to learn from others and incorporate new stories and perspectives in all their work. This workshop reflects the Musée Héritage Museum and how they do things, but the intent is for participants to discover more about themselves and their own cultural contexts. By sharing the Musée Héritage Museum’s recipe for ‘Social Soup,’ participants will explore their own ‘recipe’ of serving their communities in unique and meaningful ways. With a virtual tour of the museum sites, presentations from staff, and opportunities for sharing, this hands-on learning opportunity will end with a soup lunch – recipe included! Please note: Discounted rates are available when registering for both 2021 Social Responsibility Workshops; please email us at registration@museums.ab.ca before you register. For further information on the workshop or the Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, please contact Ben Fast, Program Lead, at learning@museums.ab.ca. The Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility directly supports museums that are true contributors to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta.
