Artist Trading Cards Workshop to Celebrate National Persons Day

Saturday October 13th, 1:00-2:00pm

On October 18, 1929, women were proclaimed as "persons" and therefore able to vote in Canada. Join us for a talk about the museum's archival collection of suffragette and women's rights material, followed by an Artist Trading Card workshop led by mixed-media artist Mary Bennett, with the theme: Women as Persons. 



A Haunted Evening at the Old Hastings Mill Store Museum

Saturday October 27th, 6:30pm-9:00pm

As a fundraiser for the museum, the paranormal investigation team, Vancouver Supernatural,  will be providing an in-depth look at the latest equipment and techniques used by them in tracking paranormal activity at allegedly haunted locations. Do ghosts of the past haunt Vancouver’s oldest building? Refreshments provided along with a chance to be photographed with the team's full spectrum camera! Costumes encouraged!
