Charlottetown launches exhibit on P.E.I. Acadians


The public is invited to explore the history of the Acadians in Charlottetown in an exhibit entitled “Picturing a City: The Acadians’’.

The exhibit is part of the Congrés mondial acadien 2019 celebrations.

Staff with the City of Charlottetown searched their collections and reached out to the community for images, artifacts and stories of the Acadian people in Charlottetown.

Heritage staff worked with individuals and organizations, particularly Georges Arsenault and the P.E.I. Museum and Heritage Foundation, to obtain images and artifacts to make the exhibit possible. These donations allow the history of the city to be shared with the public and promotes its rich heritage.

All are welcome to come and view the display in the storefront windows of the planning and heritage department at 233 Queen St. The exhibit runs until Sept. 16.

For more information on donating photos or allowing the city’s heritage staff to scan images to be used in a future display, contact the department at 902-629-4051.

Past exhibits can be found at charlottetownstories.wordpress.com.
