Museum Hackathon-Yukon 2017: Call for Participants

We're excited to be participating in this year's Museum Hackathon-Yukon! From September 22nd - 24th, a multidisciplinary team will "hack" the OLCM using new technology and interpretive approaches. Are you involved in the arts and culture sector, a museum/heritage professional, a computer engineer, coder, A/V technician, or game designer? We want to hear from you! Assistance with travel and accomodation is available. 

Robin's Redemption

Hold on to your hats, Whitehorse, because have we got a show for you! The very talented folks from Live History are coming to town to take you back in time to 1906... 

The revered Bishop Bompas has passed away. He promised to leave the remainder of his estate to a good cause, but in his own mysterious way. As an esteemed member of the congregation, you have been invited to attend the funeral reception, presided over by popular missionary Isaac Stringer. The recently deceased has sent each of you odd clues, letters and objects, and it is up to you to solve the puzzle. However, the funeral reception is soon interrupted by Robin, who used to frequent the streets of Whitehorse, begging for change or food. Robin was often avoided by members of the community, and eventually faded from the city's memory. Bishop Bompas was the only person who understood Robin's unique personality and views on the world. But now, you will join forces to find a hidden treasure, and set Robin free...

Performances on Friday, June 16th, at 6 pm and 8 pm; Saturday, June 17th, at 4 pm and 6 pm. Adult tickets are $20, seniors $15, and youth (13+) $10. Tickets available on Eventbrite. All proceeds go to the Old Log Church Museum. Light refreshments will be served.

Around the Kitchen Table Artist Talk

We invite you to join us on Saturday, January 14th, at 7 PM as we discuss the collaborative process, constraints, and how we came together to create the museum installation "Around the Kitchen Table" - the presentation of a treasured artifact in an innovative and interactive way through an audiovisual installation create by the multidisciplinary group History Hackers. Free admission and hot beverages to take the chill off!
