Kim Gough

Learning Program Developer

Kim Gough came to the Learning Department of the Royal BC Museum in 2007 after 11 years of working in museums, heritage sites and interpretation centres in Alberta. She started her career as a costumed interpreter and went on to roles in school programming, special event co-ordination and site management.

Her work for the Royal BC Museum has included school programs, feature exhibitions, volunteer training, gallery interpretation and the development of a smartphone app. Now with a focus on outreach, Kim will develop more opportunities for people who cannot physically visit the museum to explore the collections, learn new skills and encourage dialogue and reflection.

Education

I went to the University of Lethbridge, in Southern Alberta, where there are tunnels between the buildings so that you don't have to battle the winds and a lot of nice people too. I graduated with distinction with a BA in anthropology and a minor in drama. I am currently enrolled in the master's of museum education program at the University of British Columbia—an amazing course for people interested in informal education.
