Immigration Experiences Explored Through ‘Canada: Day 1'

Lloydminster, AB/SK – The Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre (LCSC) is pleased to present Canada: Day 1, a large-scale travelling exhibit that shares the first steps and first impressions of newcomer’s to Canada.

From December 17, 2016, until March 25, 2017, LCSC will host the Canada: Day 1 exhibit, which explores diverse personal immigration experiences in a thoughtful way through oral histories, archival images, original artworks, objects and participation. Visitors will be transported back to their first day in Canada and inspired to imagine themselves in a newcomer’s shoes.

“Canada: Day 1 is about providing new perspectives and supporting a greater understanding of what newcomers to Canada experienced during their first moments in a new world,” said Shawna Maurice, Manager, Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre. “This will be one of the LCSC’s largest and most immersive exhibits of 2017 and we hope visitors from throughout the region will take advantage of this rare opportunity.”

Canada: Day 1 is a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 as a legacy project of Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017 and is supported by RBC Foundation.

Regular admission rates apply. For more information, please visit https://www.pier21.ca or www.lloydminster.ca/LCSC.
