Nordic Heritage Teen Council: Winter 2014
We're excited to announce the next session of the NHTC, beginning on January 9! Lucas Sheetz, who will head up this year's Teen Council, has been working hard to plan on awesome winter session. Lucas is a second-year graduate student in the UW Museology Program. He loves museums and teaching, and he's a great addition to the program. The winter session will focus on the idea of arts and crafts. Using Nordic heritage and the Museum's collection as a jumping-off point, we will explore heritage through the lens of artistry and craftsmanship, and touch upon other cultures according to the interests of the group. We will explore process, design and function, and even have the opportunity to create our own objects of heritage. Students will also contribute to the Nordic Heritage Teen Council blog, and share their process of inquiry, experience, and ideas with a broader audience. Finally, students will plan and deliver public programs for the Museum's Free First Thursday events.
We are looking forward to a fun and engaging winter session that celebrates the heritage of all cultures, and reminds us of why it is worth preserving.
Winter Session: January 9-March 13, 2014
Application Deadline: January 1, 2014
