Tours and workshops on Free Sunday

Event, in English and in French, 2 July, 1pm to 5pm

Every first Sunday of each month, entry to the CCA and its exhibitions is free.

On Sunday 2 July, we invite you to discover or rediscover our exhibitions The Lives of Documents—Photography as Project, File Under: Law and Policy and Visibly Iroquoian.

For adults, free guided tours are offered in French and English and include an introduction to our ideas and approaches, as well as a walk through our exhibitions. Ask questions and be asked questions in a friendly atmosphere.

Also, join us anytime, in Park Baile, between 1pm and 2:30pm for youth and family activities, as part of our special summer programming. Meet our programmer Vanessa Owusu-Piameng for a collage and writing workshop on Blackness and Black identity in the built environment and everyday life. How does your block sustain community connections? What changes do you notice around your neighbourhood and how it impacts your community and rituals?

Kids drop-in activity time:
1pm—2:30pm: bilingual

Guided tours for adults:
3pm: in English

The workshop, suitable for kids 7 years and older, will take place on the lawn in front of CCA’s entrance. In case of rain, activities will be moved inside the museum to the Shaughnessy House.

There is no need to make a reservation to participate in these free activities or visit the exhibitions, simply stop by our reception desk on your way in.
