Museum Chat Live! E601 – Creating Where’s the Pig?

Welcome back to Museum Chat Live! We’ve missed you!

On this episode of Museum Chat Live!, we take you on a journey through the creation of the St. Catharines Museum’s Where’s the Pig? virtual adventure series and dig a little deeper into its inspiration and why this kind of museum work is so important!

To help us explore this work a little further, we’ve invited historian Dr. Tim Compeau, who, among many accolades, teaches Digital Public History in the history graduate program at Western University.
