Be/Longing
Opening night:
February 17
6 pm - 8 pm on the 3rd floor of the Anvil Centre

Exhibition dates: February 18, 2018 - October 7, 2018

Through commissioned artworks and a series of community stories, this exhibition explores experiences of belonging, and longing to be at home in contemporary New Westminster.

Be/Longing is the culmination of a series of yearlong collaborative conversations between the New Westminster Museum & Archives, New Westminster Arts Services, artists and the residents of our city. The focus of this conversation was “home,” and the numerous meanings of the word. During Canada’s sesquicentennial, we wanted to know what people imagined, felt or dreamed of when they thought of home.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Ce projet est financé en partie par le gouvernement du Canada.
