A Roundtable Discussion, chaired by Olga Milosevich

Wednesday, November 13, 2013, noon to 1pm 

Women’s Council House, 989 Young Ave., Halifax (at the corner of Young and Inglis)

Please join us for a discussion about the history, architecture, and the past and possible future uses of this building from a panel of experts, sponsored by the Heritage Trust and other community partners. The panel will discuss the following questions:

-Should the Home , built by women helping women and their children, be saved?

-What does this building, designed by a leading Victorian architect in 1899, represent for heritage and history in the Maritimes?

-How could this icon of women’s history contribute to positive change for women at Saint Mary’s and beyond?
