For the last few years I have been organizing for the National Gallery of Canada a series of French language lectures given on Wednesdays. The topics have been varied but are focused on the Arts, Culture and artists.
This year after the English language coordinator retired, I was asked to think up a program of lectures in French and in English to be given on Wednesday Mornings at 10:30 at the National Gallery of Canada on Sussex Drive. In total 24 lectures given by experts and curators focusing this year on our Museum and its treasures. The lectures are given one Wednesday in French and then in English the next week, the topic is not necessarily repeated, so we alternate.
Not easy to find speakers and create a program which will be of interest to our varied public.
This year the program has been revamped and publish in a Robin’s Egg blue and is also viewable on the website of the NGC. http://www.gallery.ca
I did not have much time to think of a program and worked flat out to produce it in 2 weeks. I am very proud of this achievement and happy to have been able to find the lecturers who volunteered to speak.
