The Legacy Project

The Legacy Project

Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 6:30pm, FREE
Queen's Square Gallery


Please join us for the inaugural screening of The Legacy Project, a moving documentary film that follows seniors and youth as they share traditions of drum making, cooking, and harvesting. Fundamentally celebrating the exchange of wisdom and ritual between cultures and generations, the film was a collaboration between Cambridge Art Galleries, community seniors organizations, and filmmakers Gary Kirkham and Dwight Storring. This remarkable project, developed as a response to Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary, transcended barriers between generations and cultures within our community to create an inspiring and enduring legacy heirloom. Filmed on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnawbe and Neutral peoples, this project was made possible through the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Grant and by support from our community partners: Stirling Heights Long Term Care, Chartwell Queen’s Square Retirement Residence, and the Cambridge Gleaners.
