The Fredericton Region Museum is happy to welcome Dr. Krista Wilkins, assistant professor in the nursing faculty at the University of New Brunswick, as a new partner/co-curator for our upcoming exhibit, “Stories of Those Affected by Cancer”.

Dr. Wilkins is contributing the results of her research on two-time cancer survivors. Her research involves interviewing people about their experiences and capturing their stories through meaningful photographs. A select portion of these photographs will be displayed in the new exhibit.

We are proud to join hands with another branch of the community in producing this project and look forward to an improved and more engaging exhibit thanks to our new team member, Krista Wilkins.

Also coming up is a writing workshop facilitated by Biff Mitchell. This workshop is intended to help those who have been affected by cancer put their story into words. The workshop is free and those attending may choose to submit their story for an upcoming exhibit due to launch this autumn. (“Stories of Those Affected by Cancer)

The workshop will be held in the Wolastoq Room of the Fredericton Public Library on June 17th from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM. We hope you can join us!
