While Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) facilities remain closed due to COVID-19, three new virtual events will be brought to the art gallery this month.
PAMA is excited to welcome “Our Boys Virtual Exhibition” which launches on November 10, 2020.
To commemorate 100 years since the beginning of World War I, Heritage Mississauga documented soldiers from Mississauga who served and were killed in the war.
These soldiers are remembered on Heritage Mississauga’s Virtual War Memorial and presented in this exhibition which is on display throughout the Region of Peel.
You can view the virtual exhibition here when it goes live on November 10.
- Police continue search for 33 year old woman last seen in Brampton
- Brampton man charged with human-trafficking crimes
- Police investigating after woman assaulted by male with sword in Brampton
PAMA also virtually welcomes award-winning actor, producer and director, Anthony Sherwood as he pays to tribute African-Canadian history with his award-winning docudrama, Honour Before Glory.
There will be a virtual talk with Sherwood about his unique family history and personal relationship to this special project that brought history to life with the film.
He will also discuss the trials and tribulations in making the film and how the documentary has impacted communities across Canada and abroad.
You can register for free online and the workshop will be held on Microsoft Teams.
Lastly, there will be a Lunch & Learn with senior archivist Kyle Neill as he explores some Remembrance Day stories exclusively from the Peel Archives.
Some of the treasures that will be discussed include a First World War soldier’s notebook, service cards documenting Peel residents who fought in the Second World War and behind-the-scenes photographs taken in the 1950s at the AVRO complex in Malton.
This event will be hosted through Microsoft Teams and attendees can expect a link to attend on the week of the workshop. You can register for free here.
