Waterford 150 Celebrations

Old Town Hall

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, September 22, 23 & 24


View Common Ground: An Interactive Exhibition by Kathryn Hogh, Kit Julian, and Tanya Logan in the gallery at the Old Town Hall. Explore food as common ground, and a universal experience. Through the ecosystem, emerging splendidly in Norfolk County, this tongue-in-cheek exhibition includes new contraptions and a soundscape of food memories from people in the community. On site, you will be invited to add your most memorable food experience to be included in the installation. The Friday night opening will also feature a reading by local author Catherine M.A. Wiebe from her novel Second Rising.

On Sunday, the Town Hall Kids perform Now I Know my Eh, B, C's, an original play written by Art With Heart's Artistic Director Nikki Campbell-Schram.
