TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS

Witchcraft Explored

May 12 – November 15, 2019

The idea of “witchcraft” as we know it today, was largely understood to be practiced in North America during Colonization. This pop-up exhibition navigates the definition of witchcraft and its history in the Americas during the 18th century in Canada and beyond. Some material might be sensitive to younger audiences. The exhibition is housed upstairs in the Barn.

La sorcellerie telle que nous la connaissons aujourd’hui était largement comprise comme pratiquée en Amérique du Nord pendant la colonisation. Cette exposition éphémère navigue dans la définition de la sorcellerie et de son histoire dans les Amériques au XVIIIe siècle.
