Events calendar

Unique gifts by fellow WASM member, Shaune Thompson:

Mark your calendars! From November 18-20, swing by my studio between 11am-4pm to shop my mugs, prints, greeting cards, ornaments, and coasters - which make great holiday gifts! There will be a surprise giveaway, sweet treats from our neighbourhood favourites @Patzels and @Sundaiz, and other fellow creators will be participating as well!

I have teamed up with local St-Henri artist Paul John Elliott to bring you District Doodles - a mug and coaster series that captures all the iconic spots in our beloved St-Henri neighbourhood from the Atwater Market, to the Greenspot, to Little Pink, to Henri the Heron, and even one of the neighbourhood’s missing cats. Using my photography shots of the community, Paul beautifully illustrated the landmarks to bring you the first-ever District Doodles mug and coaster set. Launching exclusively at our holiday pop-up, come by and grab a mug to enjoy pre-launch discounted pricing, starting Friday until Sunday only! The mugs and coasters will be available for sale on our new website starting Monday November 21st:


From the McGill library ROAAr:

Missing Voices: South Asian Perspectives on the Gwillim Archives

Online Event - November 30th, 10:00 AM (ET)

Join us for the launch of the Missing Voices, a website that explores how South Asian women create their own archives today, and how they use, and experience colonial archives made by European women in India over 200 years ago. We’ll hear from New York Times journalist Alisha Sawhney as she recounts her experience making the podcast Lost Voices: An Untold Story of the South Asian Diaspora, which invites young women in Canada to share their perspectives of history, identity, and memory. We’ll speak with Minakshi Menon, a scholar whose work explores colonial sciences in South Asia, about her experience working with the Gwillim Archives. We’ll also hear from Deborah Thiagarajan and Rekha Vijayashankar, of the Dakshina Chitra Museum in Chennai, who undertook a re-photography project to link places and scenes in Chennai today to images in the Gwillim Archives, creating a contemporary archive of new images.


Also from the library: Holiday season is fast approaching. Consider something from our library for the bibliophile in your life.

AMAZE, our latest pop-up book, notebooks, pencil cases, puzzles, and our newest card game, Moments in Time/Instantporels are all for sale in our 4th floor reading room during opening hours, or online via Le James Bookstore.
