This multidisciplinary soirée is part of the Morrin Centre’s Connecting Through Culture series, which includes a variety of bilingual events, such as historical talks and musical concerts. Through these events, participants have the opportunity to meet members of the Francophone and Anglophone communities and come together through their shared passions.

Don’t miss this interactive talk/workshop in English, followed by a bilingual Q&A, to be held at the Morrin Centre on Thursday, September 11 at 7:00 p.m.


$15.00; includes a glass of wine or beer (to get your internal natural historian’s curiosity flowing). Participants will also have the option to purchase sketchbooks at the beginning of the session.
