Shoe Obsession with The Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto: Yvette Brown
Tuesday, February 28, 2023
Join Yvette for a discussion on how foot has taken on many meanings from privilege and status to provide a steady consumer base for enterprises. How the wearing of shoes communicates a message of culture, style, and sometimes status. Learn how shoes reflect your personality, thoughts, and state of mind. Yvette Brown is the Head of Education at the Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto, Canada. Her role is to deliver educational programs and activities for all ages that broaden the understanding of the history and cultural significance of footwear. In addition to working at Bata Shoe Museum, Yvette has worked at Sheridan College, in Ontario, Canada, as a professor and holds a Master’s degree in Adult Education. Register to obtain Zoom link.
