Sunday, 15 September 2019 – 1:00pm to 3:00pmFAMILY SUNDAYS

With the Sarah Corning Society celebrating Yarmouth hero Sarah Corning, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia invites you to create your own hero!

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has partnered with the Sarah Corning Society for this Family Sunday to welcome Syrian refugees and other newcomers to the Yarmouth region. Come along and greet new families in our community. All are welcome!

As part of the Family Sunday activity, create a booklet about the heroes in your community that make you proud.

  • All materials will be supplied.
  • Regular admission will include the workshop.
  • All children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Sarah Corning is much more than a historical figure from Nova Scotia’s past. Sarah’s humanitarianism and service (1919-1930) to the victims of the Armenian genocide is reflected in how we embrace refugees and welcome them as new Canadians. She was a hero to many young children who lost their homes and families.
