AT HOME: MY HOUSE, MY MUSEUM 3 | At home with the writer with Kenneth Park

Thursday 28 Apr 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

All over the world, house museums preserve and present the story of a personality in the context of their own home. In opening the door of the homes of some most celebrated artists, writers, writers, and politicians we are offered an uniquely intimate insight into the private lives of people who have left their mark! 

In this lecture, we visit the homes of writers like Victor Hugo, Anne Montgomery, Ernst Hemingway, Robert Louis Stevenson … 

KENNETH W PARK has served as Curator of Collections at Wesley College, Melbourne for just on thirty years. This role sees him responsible for the school’s extensive art and archival collections. Kenneth also consults in both the corporate and public sectors in philanthropic fundraising (especially in planned giving) as well as marketing, sponsorship, art, membership / loyalty and public relations. 

An avid traveller, tour leader and lecturer, Kenneth works with a range of tourism organisations and travel companies across the globe. He lives by the motto: ‘Life is a grand tour so make the most of it’. His tertiary studies include political science, administration, museum studies, industrial relations, fine arts, history and international relations. Kenneth has a passion for travel, food, wine, arts, architecture, history, and good conversation … essentially the good life!
