Please join us in welcoming Maggie Kase to the Southwest Seattle Historical Society! Maggie joined the staff of the Historical Society as the Programs and Interpretation Coordinator in October and will be developing new, dynamic programmatic offerings and interpretive experiences for our audiences.
Of joining the team at the Historical Society, Maggie notes, “I am very excited to become part of the Historical Society team. It seems to me that if the past year has proven anything, it’s demonstrated again and again that our own personal experiences are invaluable to understanding our world and what it means to be a citizen. Together, they weave the larger tapestry that we think of as history, but each voice matters. That idea is central to what drives the Historical Society – that every voice really matters in understanding our world – and I’m thrilled to be creating programming and interpretive materials that highlight the West Seattle community in that light.”
Maggie previously worked as a museum consultant and teaching artist. She specialized in visitor services support, public programming, exhibits, and interpretation, most notably for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center. Before moving to Washington, Maggie worked at a combination of museums and cultural centers in the programming and curatorial departments including The Mount: Edith Wharton’s Home, and the Berkshire Cultural Resource Center. She holds bachelor’s degrees in Arts Management and English Literature from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and a master’s degree in Museology from the University of Washington.
The Historical Society is thrilled to welcome Maggie to our team and community!
