We are pleased to introduce you to Leslie Hutchinson, our new Curator and Collections Manager and our first full-time employee! 

Leslie comes to us with a decade of cultural and heritage experience in a variety of organizations, including the Revelstoke Railway Museum and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. She has worked in Manitoba, Ontario and British Columbia focusing on the fields of conservation, exhibit preparation, architectural restoration, archives and education. She holds an advanced diploma in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College of Applied Arts and Technologies in addition to a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance from Brandon University. 

Her main goal is to have the Workers’ History Museum Collection accessible on-line. She is starting this project by getting our collection of objects, records and books better organized. She is also working with our image archivist, Paul Harrison, on the collection of photos that he has for the museum, as well as photographing the objects within the collection. 

She is passionate about the preservation, presentation and interpretation of history, so she will fit right in with the Board members and other volunteers of the museum.
