Remaking the Fabric of Island History workshops

Join the Chairs Circle for Gender Equality for workshops on “Remaking the Fabric of Island History.” In the morning, “Introducing the Black Women’s History Project” will offer a first look at a project to develop resources on Black women’s history for PEI classrooms. In the afternoon, “Votes for Women: The Next 100 Years” will explore the evolution of voting rights in the hundred years since gender was removed as a barrier to voting in 1922 and anticipate the hundred years to come. Throughout the day, expect short, snappy micro-workshops, with opportunities for learning skills in documenting, archiving, and sharing under-represented stories. A light lunch will be provided. Admission is free; spaces may be limited. Register at info@peistatusofwomen.ca.
