CAM remembers our dear friend and colleague Jeremy Silvester, who passed away in 2021. Jeremy was a visionary in the museum world and worked tirelessly to support our community. Jeremy was dedicated to celebrating, sharing, and preserving Namibian heritage through his leadership at the Museums Association of Namibia, and also supported numerous CAM initiatives as a board executive and member. Jeremy was integral to CAM over many years – supporting the development and delivery of workshops, applying for funding, serving as a board member, and as part of the human remains project team. Jeremy remains in our thoughts and prayers and we send our love and support to his family and friends.
