Through a partnership with Algonquin College’s Applied Museum Studies program, we want to welcome Nicole Gratrix to our team!
I am so excited to be working with the Goulbourn Museum team for my Applied Museum Studies placement. From January until the end of April, I will be working on educational programming projects for the Museum as an intern.
I completed the Visual and Creative Arts program at Sheridan College before changing paths and taking Applied Museum Studies at Algonquin. I love to teach and learn, and I’m fond of history and the arts, so programming was the way to go. I’ve previously worked in interpretation, administration, and education at a few different institutions in the Simcoe-Muskoka area.
Outside of work and school, I do a bit of illustration here and there. Some of my merchandise designs appeared at RuPaul’s DragCon LA in 2018, which was pretty exciting!
Working with the Museum during the pandemic is sure to be a valuable experience full of unique challenges. I look forward to working alongside such a friendly and passionate team, and I can’t wait to see what the next few months have to bring!
