Up Home at The Centre for Craft and Design, Sydney, NS
Just got back from a wonderful few days in Sydney for the occasion of the opening of Up Home at the Centre for Craft and Design. I spent several days working with the sixth grade students at Harbourside Elementary. They did a wonderful job writing and illustrating special memories. Their work is on display along with the original illustrations and text from Up Home by Shauntay Grant, published by Nimbus. Her Honour, the Honourable Mayann E. Francis, ONS, DHumL, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia opened the show with a moving speech. The exhibition was made possible through partnerships with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Tourism, Culture and Heritage, Office of African Nova Scotian Affairs, African Nova Scotia Service Provider Network and the Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board. Thank you all and thank you, Kris Webster and Carol Beaton.
