Slowly Becoming Canadian – Episode 14 – Canada Day 1

Canada Day 1.jpg

To celebrate Canada turning 150, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 (in Halifax, NS) will launch its Canada Day 1 exhibit on March 18th. I was very lucky to be allowed to take a peek at it while it was still being put together. I also got to interview museum’s curator, Dan Conlin, who gave me my own private tour and to meet one of the artists who colaborated on the exhibit, Charley Young.

If you can’t get to Halifax to see the exhibit, take a look at the museum’s website www.pier21.ca or follow them on Facebook, twitter or Instagram.

You can find out more about Charley’s work on her website: charleyyoung.com

Thank you again to the museum (who wishes to thank the RBC Foundation for their support and contribution) and a special thanks to Dan Conlin.
