CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS

We are very excited to be planning a brand new art program for youth which we will be running  in the late Spring of 2019. We've received partial funding and we're now seeking additional help in the form of volunteers, in kind donations of art supplies, woodworking tools, art making tools, printing, carving, textiles, a sewing machine, and also financial donations and sponsorships. We are now actively canvasing our community to raise the additional funds and supplies needed to make this community project the great success we want it to be!

If you or someone you know may be able to help, or if you'd like more information, please contact Lee Cripps at The Craig Gallery regarding our ART CLUB project.
902-461-4698 x215 or lee@alderneylanding.com.

When someone suggested “The Birds and The Bees” as our theme, a few people snickered, but you could feel the excitement grow. Written in poetry and song, in jest and all-seriousness, the phrase evokes images far and wide. Our members were encouraged to think outside the box, challenge their creativity and create work that inspires and responds to the phrase. The Nova Scotia Potters Guild would like to present to you our 2019 members group show.

Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour

Media artist Leola LeBlanc, in collaboration with local youth, created Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour, an interactive on-line map and interactive walking tour of the Geary Street Cemetery that is accessible to youth and the public. The tour and map will be incorporated into curriculum created for Elementary, Junior High and High School students in collaboration with Alderney Landing’s Bluenose Ghosts Festival. (approx. 145 schools will be invited to participate)

The project has created an interactive map and tour filled with creative information relating to the historical significance of the Geary Street Cemetery.

Unfortunately, at this time the platform this tour was created on no longer exists. We are looking into an alternative solution. Thank you for your patience.
