EMMA : Your Amazing Tour guide for the Louvre !
You can see a video of her below
Emma currently lectures in Museum Studies at the Sorbonne Nouvelle.
Emma holds amazing qualifications in Art History from University College Dublin and La Sorbonne.
Her masters research focused on how Egyptian themes were used as propaganda in the public art of Napoleonic Paris. Emma has a passion for storytelling and so stories are central to the way she talks about history. One thing her research highlighted is that art, architecture and historical events don’t happen in a vacuum and it is only when you start looking at them in context that they really come to life. She has worked as an educator and researcher at various cultural organisations and museums in France, Ireland and the UK - including the Louvre, Orleans House Gallery and the Arts Service of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, where she managed a dynamic team of educators and designed educational programs for a wide range of age groups and backgrounds.
