Discovering the Musée Héritage Museum Archives
Musée Héritage Museum, 5 St. Anne Street
Oct 4–11, 2019
To celebrate Archives Week 2019, the Musée Héritage Museum is proud to open a new exhibit in our permanent gallery dedicated to the archives. “Discovering” is an exhibit that will highlight what an archives is, what kind of materials are found in archives, the work that goes into preservation and digitization, and also look at the need for climate control in the archives. There will be a TV screen to showcase different materials from our archives that we have digitized over the years, such as photographs, LPs, audio cassettes, VHS, beta, and more. As well, there will be a computer for people to search through our holdings. We will also be bringing back our popular Archives Challenges where people can test their interpretive skills bases on archival reproductions placed on the table and answering questions.
Our museum will also be participating in the ASA’s social media campaign to highlight different groups of people who visit archives and the diverse types of records available to them.
No registration required
Call for submissions: Sense of Place, Culture Days 2019 Collaborative Book Project
Exhibition Dates: September 25 to October 12, 2019
Art Gallery of St. Albert wants to know how you define your sense of place. What makes a place meaningful? Where do you feel that you belong? How do we relate to physical space? For many people, their sense of place is tied to a physical location; their home, their city, the land, their country or somewhere further afield. Place can also exist abstractly and on different scales (eg. your place in a book, in life, the universe, and imaginary places).Call for Submissions
We will be screening Ada in the exhibitions vault on the main floor of the Gallery.
Lindsay McIntyre is a Canadian film artist of Inuk/settler Scottish descent. McIntyre’s process-based works, mainly in analogue film, explore themes of portraiture, place, and personal histories. This award-winning artist maintains strong links to Canada’s North and her Indigenous roots.More information on Ada
