100th Object



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

What would the face of the English-speaking communities in Quebec look like if we collaged its portrait using 100 different objects? That's what the 100 Objects project of the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network is aiming to find out, and put the results into a new website. It is to be launched on March 26.

The Identity of English-speaking Quebec in 100 Objects project has collected things from historical societies and other organizations from all over Quebec. They're large and small, far and wide, old and new.
Well, not so many new ones. The past is well represented, but what about the present? That's where your help is welcome.
So now, the 100 Objects project is on the hunt for the 100th object. That's right, something that symbolizes life today.
The object could be something that has endured from the past or a 21st century development that helps characterize today's English-speaking communities in Quebec.

It could be something unique to Anglophones, or it could be something that we share with French-speaking Quebecers. Part of our identity is how we are similar to other Quebecers, and maybe a little different from English speakers in the ROC - the rest of Canada.

The first question is: What is an important feature of our daily life as a community or as individuals? And then: What object could symbolize that feature?

The project is looking for artefacts. That is, the actual object is wanted, not a photograph of something or someone. For example, already in the project is the helm of a boat, rather than a photograph of it. That's about the importance of river travel.

What would you suggest?
Send your idea - a photograph of the object and a paragraph or two explaining why you think it should be the 100th object in the portrait of English-speaking Quebec - to 100objects@qahn.org. Or mail it to 100th Object, QAHN, 400-257 Queen Street, Sherbrooke (Lennoxville) QC J1M 1K7.

Please don't forget to send your name and contact information. This is a contest that offers Quebec-wide glory for the winner.

Deadline: Monday, February 18, 2013.
