Nadine Finlay (she/her)
Curator

Nadine grew up beside the Thames River in the traditional lands of the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Lunaapeewak peoples, just outside of what is known as London Ontario. She has worked with the Interpretive Centre as a volunteer, intern, Assistant Curator, and now Curator since 2017 – one week after we first opened our gallery doors! You’re likely to "run" into Nadine on an early morning run across the Lakeshore Grounds, or with a coffee in hand.

 

As Curator, Nadine’s work explores the intersection between education and information, with the goal to positively influence heritage work at the community level. Her goal is to activate the Interpretive Centre’s mission to share the rich heritage in South Etobicoke with a responsibility to the stories, communities, and people who engage with our work, and a mind for diversity, equity, and inclusion for the communities we serve.

 

Nadine holds both a Master of Museum Studies and a Master of Information, with specialization in Archives and Records Management from the University of Toronto. She focused her research on investigating Indigenous information within institutional settings, and the roads for reconciliation and collaboration between communities and institutions. Through Humber, Nadine completed the Arts Administration and Cultural Management program, the Culturally Inclusive Educator certificate, the Indigenous Knowledges courses, and the Four Seasons of Reconciliation training. Before coming to the Interpretive Centre, she earned an Honours Bachelor’s degree from Western University in English and Anthropology.
