Journey of A Lifetime - Calgary Exhibit
July 1 -16, 2017
Canmore Opera House & Railway Car Shop
Don’t miss this brand new, immersive exhibit and performance.
Journey of a Lifetime, presented by BMO Financial Group is a compelling experience that draws parallels between the struggles of early settlers and those faced by new immigrants today.
The family-friendly live performance in the Canmore Opera House is the story of a few of those courageous and hopeful immigrants who arrived through Eastern ports in 1910 and crossed Canada by Colonist train. Travel along with characters Yosyp Lebedovich, the Cousineau family and Nellie Cole as they face the challenges and rewards of following a dream.
The accompanying exhibit, open daily inside the Railway Car Shop, provides an opportunity for visitors to record and share their own immigration stories, to learn about BMO’s role in settling Western Canada and to delve deeper into this timely Canadian story. Celebrate the diversity and iron resolve of all who came to carve this mosaic which we call home.
