Historical & Architectural StorytellingPrince Albert , Saskatchewan
Heritage, Architecture — Excursion, Talks and Discussion
Join us for an interactive storytelling tour of historic downtown Prince Albert! Storytellers in period dress and local Elders will greet you at 5 locations: the Arts Centre (old city hall), Forestry Centre (site of early settlement by Indigenous and settler communities), Riverbank (crucial Indigenous travel & trade route), Adams' Celebrations by Design (historic interior), and PM John Diefenbaker's Law Office.
Our Gallery Educator has prepared an architectural handout illustrating the unique neoclassical elements of the Arts Centre and downtown buildings, and will discuss these elements as symbols of European governmental legitimacy and colonization. Sketch and photograph these architectural features for our downtown photo contest!
In partnership with PA Historical Society, PA Arts Centre, and Mann Art Gallery.
