Bata Shoe Museum launches four more online exhibitions

Oct '08
The Bata Shoe Museum is pleased to announce the launch of Phase Two of allaboutshoes.ca, a digitization project aimed at making the Museum's most exciting collections accessible to a global audience.

Complementing the initial seven online exhibits, this popular site now features an additional four titles, including "The Perfect Pair: Wedding Traditions from Around the World", "Tradition and Innovation: Northern Athapaskan Footwear", "Our Boots: An Inuit Woman's Art" and "Chronicles of Riches: Treasures from the Bata Shoe Museum".

Interactive technology and animation, as well as the ability to zoom in and out, lets online visitors 'handle' and 'rotate' artefacts online.

"No matter where a visitor is around the world," says Emanuele Lepri, Director of the Bata Shoe Museum, "having the ability to see our collection in as much detail as those who visit the Museum in person, provides an important service to our global friends."

Made possible with the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Canadian Culture Online Strategy, the exhibitions are available in both official languages.

In addition, "Our Boots: An Inuit Woman's Art" has also been translated into Inuktitut, an official language in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.

Approved by Curriculum Services Canada, a Pan-Canadian standards agency for quality assurance in learning products and programs, an extensive Teacher's Resources section accompanies each online exhibit and offers teachers a variety of classroom activities and project ideas with which to engage their students.
