Yosef Wosk Travel Award

Congratulations Kate Feltren and Rebecca MacKay, the recipients of our 2019 Yosef Wosk Travel Award!

Kate Feltren

Kate is a student in the Cultural Resource Management Diploma Program. Volunteering at the Mission Museum since 2015, Kate has been involved with designing and fabricating exhibits, accessioning artifacts, research and delivering public programs. This work ignited a passion for working in the cultural field and the Yosef Wosk Travel Award allows her to travel to Victoria to take the Exhibit Fabrication course which will provide her with necessary practical knowledge she can apply to her new position at the Museum.
