Chinook Country Historical Society (CCHS) and the Calgary Association of Lifelong Learners (CALL) are launching a new series of presentations that will highlight the contribution of the many ethnic groups that comprise our city today. Entitled “Building Calgary Communities”, the series will explore the pioneers that came to Calgary to build a new life while enriching our city with the culture of their homeland.
Our objective is to highlight the individuals from these communities that brought their pioneering spirit along with their traditions and beliefs. Why did they come here? What have they contributed to our community? How did they make it easier for others to follow in their footsteps? What imprint has this community left on our city and province?
The monthly series will launch at 1 pm on October 5, 2018 with a presentation by Michael Hawley entitled “Sikh Pioneers in Calgary.” The events will be held at cSPACE King Edward at 1721 29 Avenue SW. Future events will generally be held on the first Friday of each month, with the exception of January, July and August.
|When:||first Friday of the month|
|Time:||1:00 - 3:00 PM|
|Where:||cSpace, 1721-29 Ave. SW|
