Proudly presented by the Cortes Museum & Archives Society and FolkU:
LOVE LETTERS OF CORTES
We’ve organized two sweet love-letter themed events for you! Come celebrate LOVE and join in on one or both events.
Sunday, Feb 11, 1-4pm:
A great excuse to write your friend, lover, or neighbour a love letter right before Valentine’s Day! Jane Newman will be hosting this FREE workshop at the Cortes Museum. Everyone welcome – this will be a fun, creative combination of writing and collage. No writing experience necessary.
Wednesday, Feb 14, 7-8:30pm:
YOU are invited to read a love letter (one you’ve written - or stashed from a romance long ago? Or maybe a favourite love poem?), + to listen to your neighbours, as well as archived letters from the Cortes Museum and writing by Oriane Lee, who will be hosting this event at the Cortes Museum. A heart-warming Valentine’s evening, for couples, singles, and groups alike! Sweet treats by Sunflower Foods will also be available for purchase.
Capacity of both events is limited so please register in advance to secure your spot by emailing jemmafolku.ca or calling Jemma at 250-702-4507
Events are free and sponsored by the Cortes Museum & Archives Society, Cortes Island Community Foundation, and Decoda Literacy.
