In the next couple of weeks we have some exciting programs coming up at the Galt which are provided by wonderful volunteers. First, on Wednesday March 17th at 2pm, we have a line dancing show and lesson by the YuTuKanDanz group. In honour of St. Patrick’s Day we’ll see some Irish dancing as well as some country music-style line dancing.
On Wednesday March 24th we welcome two professors from the University of Lethbridge for our programs. During the Wednesday afternoon program at 2pm, Professor Heidi Macdonald will use excerpts from 1930s diaries to examine how Canadian Youth experienced the Great Depression.
During the Wednesday March 24th Café Galt program at 7pm Josephine Mills, Director/Curator of the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, will speak about the Looming Crisis in Public Collections. She’ll examine the issues at stake for public collections in Canada today and how can these issues be addressed. There is an assumption that collections, and the individual objects, will always be there - the reality is that without adequate support and attention, public collections are at risk.
The cookies and coffee during the March 24th Café Galt program were donated by Round Street Café. We will open the exhibit at 6pm for viewing, and have the program room ready with the refreshments so that you can visit before the program starts at 7pm.
Rounding out our month of programs is the Wednesday March 31st program at 2pm provided by the Textile Surface Design Guild. The Guild will teach the art of card making.
All programs are free with admission or with your annual pass.
