July at the Cumberland Museum and Archives

 In News

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.

Check out the video of the re-enactment of Goodwin’s funeral procession, created by Fox & Bee Studio, which saw over 23,000 views to date on Facebook!

… 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
