The RMG is excited to be participating in Digital Doors Open this year!
Take a trip through our current Permanent Collection exhibition Journeys and discover the history of Lakeview Park in Oshawa’s Jewel by the Lake through two virtual tours given by our Curator of Collections, Sonya Jones.
Join us to hear from Raegan Swanson, Executive Director, The ArQuives, about the work The ArQuives is doing and what community archives can do to collect and preserve the historical record of LGBTQ2+ communities. Presented in partnership with Durham Region Area Archives Group, this Webinar compliments the online exhibition Come Out, Come Out, as part of the ongoing effort to address the lack of diverse representation in the Thomas Bouckley Collection, and in historical accounts of Oshawa and Durham Region as a whole.MAY 28: Keeping Our Stories Alive Webinar Learn More
