From March 30 – April 2, 2017 I will be collecting visual, written and audio content to capture physical and oral histories of the Peace Country area for the Idea of Place Conference that is taking place on May 6 & 7.

With this collected content I hope to create a representation of the towns/villages/hamlets I visit from the perspective of an outsider looking in to a familiar place. I intend to learn what I can by “stopping in” to these museums and documenting my process by collecting images and stories from local people.

Thanks to my friend Misa Nikolic and his extensive visits to a number of these museums it has helped to make my tasks for this project less daunting. Thank you to the research team and Lianne McTavish for heading this fantastic database of Alberta Museums!
