A representative from the Museum of Dufferin (MOD) will be at the Mill Street Library from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Drop in to find out more about 'Collecting the Community'.
‘Collecting the Community’ is an initiative by the Museum of Dufferin to actively engage with, and collect, preserve and interpret the past, present and future history of historically marginalized communities in Dufferin County. Dufferin County residents, especially those who identify as racialized and/or marginalized, are encouraged to attend and bring an item or two that is meaningful to them. This can be something that speaks to one’s personal history, immigration, culture, accomplishments, etc. Museums don’t collect only “old” objects, but new ones as well. For example, some of our recent donations include vials of one of the first COVID vaccines administered in the county, a Bisht (traditional men’s cloak), a flag created for Shelburne Multicultural Festival in 2021, and much more.
