Soundscapes Part 1 Banner featuring PMA

One of my favourite (but rare) opportunities is giving tours of the facilities here at the PMA and sharing some interesting facts that visitors may not learn from perusing the galleries. Earlier this month, we had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Katy Catchpole from Trent Radio – the host of What Do YOUth Think and Soundscapes. Katy was given a tour of our long-term exhibition galleries, as well as behind-the-scenes in the Archives and the Curatorial Centre to be aired on Soundscapes. This program seeks to get folks outside and learn more about the community of Nogojiwanong/Peterborough by simply following wherever their feet may take them. Katy interviewed me (Jessica Ernest), the Summer Administrative Assistant, and Jon Oldham, the Archivist, with each interview occupying a different time slot. In these episodes, listeners can learn what our Museum and Archives have to offer, ranging from a point of research to a point of play. There is something for all ages to discover, in any kind of weather, all year long.

 In the first episode (originally aired June 8, 2022), we specifically covered P.A. Day camps, the Youth Leadership program, and our Summer Discovery and Junior Discovery camps.

I hope you enjoy listening (and/or reading along) and I hope these radio shows inspire you to visit us at the PMA in person.

Be sure to listen to Soundscapes: Part 2 if you enjoyed the first!
