Shanna OsséCommunications Coordinator
Shanna Ossé is the Communications Coordinator for Thinking Through the Museum, based at the Curating and Public Scholarship Lab. Shanna was raised and currently situated on the un-ceded Anishinabe Algonquin territory of Ottawa. Since graduating in Communications and Digital Humanities at the University of Ottawa in 2018, Shanna’s studies has pivoted from social media analysis to museum accessibility and decolonizing the museum space with the repatriation of looted artefacts during colonization. In 2018, working in conjunction with the Ingenium – Canada’s Museum of Science and Innovation and the University of Ottawa, she participated in the creation of the online exhibit The Digital Touch: Bringing Tangibility To Museums And Medicine, exploring digital tools and their uses to bridge the gap between touch accessibility, museum protocols and medicine. Her project, A Hole in a Heart, focuses on 3D imaging being transformed into 3D printed materials to aid in the surgical process of patching the Atrial Septal Defect in infants.
