Explore, Discover, Encounter – the hidden spaces, places and stories of Kingston

 

The Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites is seeking expressions of interest for Doors Open 2021!

In anticipation of Doors Open Kingston 2021, the Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries and Historic Sites are seeking expressions of interest from local cultural heritage spaces, sites and organizations to participate in the 2021 event.

Although the feasibility of a 2021 event depends upon guidance from the City of Kingston, the provincial government and the KFL&A Health Unit, we are asking interested sites to consider how they might be willing participate in Doors Open Kingston. 

In 2020, Doors Open Kingston facilitated both indoor and outdoor guided and self-guided tours.  These tours took place during designated time slots and were available to established social bubbles, with participant caps set by the participating site in consideration of social distancing requirements.  Social bubbles were required to pre-book their tour slot through Eventbrite.  KAM provided PPE (sanitizer and disposable masks) for all visitors and staff during the event.

Doors Open Kingston 2021 will likely take on a similar structure, but we would also like to consider expanding site participation to online tours or workshops.  Also, we would like to offer two different event dates, one in the spring and one in the autumn.

The 2021 theme for Doors Open Ontario is ENVIRONMENT.

Please note, this expression of interest is not a formal application for registration.  KAM staff will follow up with all interested sites and organizations at a later date. 

Please complete the form below and email to info@kingstonmuseums.ca by March 1st 2021.
