100



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Okay, we're up to 100 objects. But the 100th one is a surprise. We have to have something to unveil at the grand launch, don't we? It will be the 100th.

Well, I haven't said anything yet about a couple of object from our very own Haut-Saint-François. Shall we let them, too, be a surprise?

The hundred objects are in many corners of Quebec. dashing around, finding them, shooting them, that's the fun part. In mid-winter. I made it up to Baie Comeau on the third try, between storms. Then out-ran another storm, driving down from Jonquière. It's all a bit crazy, this seasonal labour the government imposes by its funding cycle. It's just a lot of slogging through snow.

But what gorgeous surprises I've encountered, while on the hunt. The hunt, of course, is part of the 100 Objects project. It's finding 100 objects that, together, sketch a portrait of the English-speaking communities in Quebec.
Well, we all know that's an impossible project. But still, we will manage to get the website up and operating at 100objects.qahn.org before the end of March. And then we can talk about the portrait. It won't be perfect. It might not even be pretty. But I just hope it doesn't turn out to be a caricature.

By the way, those four letters in the website address - QAHN. They stand for the non-profit organization who's doing this project - the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network. So you can guess that some museums and historical societies might be involved. Our very own Eaton Corner Museum, for one.

Stand by for more, anon.
