July at the Cumberland Museum and Archives
The 33rd annual Miners Memorial event brought together hundreds of attendees in honour of the 100-year anniversary of the shooting death of labour organizer and activist, socialist, and conscience objector, Albert ‘Ginger’ Goodwin. Workshops, talks, music, theatre, button-making, silk-screening, choir, breakfasts, and walking tours provided different opportunities to reflect on the lessons learned from the life and death of Goodwin.
… And a video produced by Neil Vokey for the BCGEU (title sponsor) featuring highlights from the weekend!
We would love to hear feedback from attendees. Share your thoughts through this LINK.
For those who were unable to attend, programming continues! Save the date for July 27 (the date of Goodwin’s death) and the release of the official funeral procession re-enactment photograph at the museum. Be sure to visit the “Goodwin’s Reach” temporary exhibit running until October 12, for a unique opportunity to view a collection of creative projects inspired by the Goodwin story.
