Sinead is an artefact with a Huron County provenance. As Curator of Engagement & Dialogue, she leads special events, educational programs and group tours. She also offers outreach programs throughout the county. Starting as a volunteer and summer student, Sinead has worked at the museum since 2011, and she’s served quite some time in gaol with our annual ‘Behind the Bars’ night tours, occasionally as a nineteenth-century vagrant.  

After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario and the University of Leeds in Yorkshire, England, Sinead received a Master’s degree in Public History from Carleton University. The Huron County Museum and Historic Gaol featured heavily in her Major Research Essay, which examined depictions of the poor in rural southwestern Ontario museums. Outside of the museum she is a fan of Hindi cinema, a photographer of cows, and also co-director of Staging Our Histories: a performance event dedicated to histories ‘off the page and on the stage.’  In 2020 she wrote a book – Prisoner Profiles: Unlocking Secret Stories from the Huron Historic Gaol.
