As a passionate and hard-working museum professional, Zoe McQuinn loves to take the academic and make it accessible. After lecturing at the University of Toronto for several years, Zoe took on the challenge of transforming the Royal Ontario Museum’s Festival Programs into a dynamic platform where arts, music, history, and culture are explored with an innovative schedule of performers, storytellers, chefs, academics, and artist. The past can only be understood through our own experience of it and Zoe passionately believes that museums were made for people of all ages and interests, without boundaries or barriers. The ROM is a magical place, that engage, challenge, and transform visitors - join in the fun!
