City Seeks Ideas for Exhibitions, Programs and Cultural Events in Kingston

Published on: 2019/04/17 - in News

Community members are being invited to take part in the next step of the ‘Your Stories, Our Histories’ project to share ideas and have a discussion about what museum exhibitions, programs and cultural events they would like to see offered by the City of Kingston.

The workshop, taking place on Thursday, April 25 from 2pm-4pm in the Front Lounge of the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, will be facilitated by First Peoples Group – a professional team of consultants with experience at all levels of government.

Jennifer Campbell, manager, cultural heritage says the City continues to work toward an updated Cultural Heritage Strategy that reflects an inclusive history of Kingston.

“We’re looking to the community for their help by continuing to share their stories, experiences and perspectives with us,” Campbell added. “This workshop is an impactful way to do that.”

Residents wishing to attend and participate are asked to RSVP at this Eventbrite page.

More information about ‘Your Stories – Our History’, including future workshops and events, can be found at City’s ‘Your Stories‘ project page.

You can also share your stories, experiences and ideas online at its ‘Our History‘ page.

About ‘Your Stories, Our Histories’

‘Your Stories, Our Histories’ is an engagement initiative designed to explore the diverse history and heritage that exists within Kingston and incorporate it into the City’s updated Cultural Heritage Strategy. This Strategy will assist in guiding the development of exhibits, programs and events offered through the Cultural Services Department, and specifically the exhibitions and programs offered through Kingston City Hall National Historic Site, the PumpHouse Museum and the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum. It will also be used as a guide for the development of exhibitions and programs to be offered as outreach initiatives throughout the Kingston community.
