Please Welcome Our New Museum Administrator!

The Board of Directors of Montgomery’s INNovators are delighted to extend our very best wishes to Florencia Berinstein, who joined the team at Montgomery’s Inn earlier this month. Her new role as Museum Administrator encompasses both the Inn and its sister museum, Colborne Lodge.

We look forward to meeting her and to working with her in the years to come. Here’s what we know so far:

Florencia Berinstein (she/her) has worked in the arts and culture sector both as an arts administrator and an arts facilitator, in deep collaboration with a broad range of community groups. Florencia was the Festival Director of Mayworks Toronto from 2001-2012. She has extensive experience in developing and executing community engaged projects that address issues of social justice. Through a Chalmers Professional Development grant from the Ontario Arts Council, Florencia completed her Master’s degree in Art in Public Space at RMIT University in Australia in 2003. From 2013-2022, Florencia was the Executive Director of the community museum the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.

On a personal note, both Florencia and the author of this post have lived, worked, or studied in four of the most interesting cities in the world: Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton, and Melbourne. I’m guessing we’ll find a lot to talk about (maybe in Spanish).
