3-D ON A BUDGET FOR MUSEUMS & COMMUNITIES: Slideshow!

3-D technologies were the order of the day when the UWI Museum hosted facilitators from the University of St Andrews in Scotland who were in the Caribbean conducting workshops under a project aimed at community museums in Europe and Latin America & the Caribbean. The project is titled EULAC Museums and the University of the West Indies is one of several partners.

VIDEO: TUNING THAT PAN!

The authentic Trini steelpan on display in the UWI Museum serves a lot of purposes: It is an artifact in its own right, donated to the UWI by a former alumna who became Prime Minister of the twin-island republic that gave birth to pan; it conjures T&T and the UWI St Augustine Campus there; it is a unique musical instrument. It also provides the museum the occasional opportunity to fill the space with the signature sound.

GETTING OUT THERE

So here’s what just landed on the desk: A hot-off-the-press copy of a new book titled: Positioning Your Museum as a Critical Community Asset. A Practical Guide. And the part that makes us proud – We’re in it!
