Shauntay Grant: Stitched Stories at Dalhousie Art Gallery - Artist Talk on October 6 at 6:30 p.m.

"In the late 1700s and early 1800s, thousands of Blacks evaded American slavery and migrated north to Nova Scotia. With them they brought their songs, stories, language, customs, and crafts," explains the Dal art gallery. Amongst these crafts were quilts, richly patterned, "a refined practice passed down from generation to generation, woman to woman."

"Stitched Stories: The Family Quilts" is on display at the Dalhousie Art Gallery until November 27. Join Shauntay Grant (former NSTT scholarship recipient) as she invites her grandmother and other family members to consider the themes of the exhibit, and pay tribute to their matriarch (Simmonds) and the life-giving work she performed with her hands.

V.E.DAY produced by Jessica Murvin will be screening at the 45th Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal

V.E.DAY directed by Courtney Kelsey
and Zachary Barkhouse, produced by Jessica Murwin, is the story of an insurrection on Canada’s east coast when Allied Victory was announced at the end of World War II. 

The film, told through the eyes of a Petty Officer, mirrors the events in Europe and the growing tensions at home. 

At times historical documentary, at others fantastical re-enactment, VEDAY aims to shed light on a little known moment in Canadian War History.

V.E.DAY will be screening as part of the 
45th Festival du Nouveau Cinema 
October 5 - 16, 2016, Montreal
as part of the Focus Competition. 

Tickets can be purchased at COURT MÉTRAGE COMPÉTITION FOCUS 3
