 A note from David Rollinson


Dear Members,

 

At the meeting on February 6th, I mentioned two programs that were interested in having IHNS members participate. They are:

 

  1. The Nova Scotia Museum Research Grant.  Awarded to individuals conducting research in Nova Scotia, industrial heritage subjects are eligible for consideration.  The outline of this program, and application forms, can be found on the Nova Scotia Museum web page:

museum.novascotia.ca/grants

 

2: The Association of Nova Scotia Museums (ANSM) is interested in recruiting IHNS members to undertake museum reviews this summer. They are particularly interested in IHNS members who have experience with industrial heritage sites. The reviews take a few days, and travel, etc. is covered. For more information check out the ANSM web page at: ansm.ns.ca/museum evaluation

 

Application deadlines for both programs are February 28, 2017.

 

The Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia is preparing a Canada 150 project that will feature photographs of pre-Confederation buildings in the province. They have asked if we could identify any industrial buildings that would suit. If you know of any please let me know and I will pass on the information. Also, if you are looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon the attached poster may appeal
