Carol Ballard – Education Programmer
When it opens in late-2020, the new Museum of North Vancouver will champion lifelong learning and creativity, with the goal of ensuring that a broad and diverse audience can access these opportunities at any stage in life.
In July 2020, Education Programmer Carol Ballard joined the great folks at Zen Maker Lab for their DesignMakePlay show to discuss themes of education and innovation in North Vancouver. Watch the interview to learn more about her work with the NVMA and what’s planned for the new Museum.
We like to think of museums and archives as spaces of inspiration, and rich sources of information on innovation and design in our community. North Vancouver has a number of stories of innovations and innovators. From the Jolly Jumper and the self-dumping barge, to the Nuyt Suit and tools made by Shipyards workers, North Vancouver has long been a community of invention and innovation.
Over the coming weeks and months, we plan to explore North Vancouver’s history of innovation on The Inlet and through programming at the new museum. Stay tuned!
