A Woman’s Place
The Musée Héritage Museum (part of the Arts and Heritage Foundation of St. Albert) is pleased to present a new exhibition that showcases how the strength of women during settlement times laid the foundation for a city.
Through artifacts and photographs from the museum’s collections, A Woman’s Place introduces visitors to the lives of St. Albert’s remarkable community builders and reminds them of the debt owed for the lives lived now.
Life for women who built and sustained communities in and around St. Albert was complex and challenging. Women stepped up when times were tough, running families, businesses and supporting the community.
“The difficulties and hardships they faced were met with strength, determination and compassion”, says Musée Héritage Museum Curator, Joanne White. “Visitors to the exhibition will be very impressed by the resilience of the women and hopefully pull inspiration from their stories into their daily lives.”
What jobs did women take on, outside of the home and off the farm? How did they support each other to get through the challenges of raising families? What organizations did they establish to create community? How did they respond in times of crisis?
Visit the museum (in St. Albert Place) for this fascinating look at those who did so much over rime, with little recognition.
A Woman’s Place runs from December 6 until March 11, 2023.
