On Saturday, September 26th, come and preserve your memories at a scrapbooking workshop located in the heart of the Fredericton Region Museum.
The Fredericton Region Museum launched it’s contemporary participatory exhibit entitled “Stories of Those Affected by Cancer” on September 5th. While constructing this exhibit, the museum called upon members of the community to submit experiences in the forms of essays, poems, songs, art and scrapbook pages. The community answered with overwhelming enthusiasm; but we are looking for more.
On September 26th, the museum will open its doors from 1 until 3 pm and host a scrapbooking workshop lead by Lynn Richard from A Pile of Scrap. Lynn will set up her studio for two hours in the cancer exhibit itself and demonstrate to attendees how something as horrible as cancer, can become art.
The Fredericton Region Museum is excited to be holding this program in line with Culture Days! Culture Days works with artists and organizations to help and raise “the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.” Culture Days is a free and invigorating experience for all involved!
Did we mention that it is free? From 1 until 3 pm there will be no admission charge to enter the museum and attend the workshop! So come and experience history, be creative and learn how to preserve your memories.
