In 2013 VEMU/Estonian Studies Centre is organising the VEMU discussion group to understand what could be the permanent exhibit in the VEMU – Museum of Estonians abroad.
We will discuss which past exhibits have been the most interesting. Why? What stories should VEMU be telling? For who? How? What matters most to Canadian Estonians, which themes, events, organisations, people, and so on? What could be interesting for Canadians? Or for visitors from Estonia and abroad? We will look at different images of other museum exhibits. We will talk about contemporary museology. We will invite guest speakers.
The first discussion group was held on February 2 for members of various clubs and organisations that use Tartu College’s facilities. The Bibliography Club, the Life Stories Writing Group, the Toronto Estonian Heritage Society and the Estonian Studies Library were represented.
