Summer Season – Busy Time


We have been so busy that time has just run away. Working on Cupids Cove Chatter for Cupids 400 Inc. and working on “The Holdin’ Ground Project” and the “Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation” for the town of Bay Roberts has been very times consuming, but extremely uplifting.

Yesterday, April 8, 2010, there was a press conference in Cupids about “The New World Theatre Project” which is being developed by Aiden Flynn of Rabbittown Theatre in St. John’s.  At a press conference at Cupids Haven  in Cupids on April 7th, 2010, plans for the New World Theatre Project were revealed. The 
New
 World
 Theatre 
Project is 
a 
classically 
based
 theatre 
project 
created
 by
 Rabbittown 
Theatre
 Company,
 launching 
in
 the 
summer
 of 
2010.
 Its 
first season
 will 
contribute 
to 
the
 Cupids
 400 
celebrations, 
an 
event 
marking
 the founding
 of 
the 
first 
English 
settlement 
in 
Canada
in
 1610. The New World Theatre Project will explore, present and celebrate the   Guy’s England, particularly what settlers may have seen, heard, or written in the London of 1610. Through ongoing dialogue and consultation with institutions such as Shakespeare’s  Globe (UK) and Shakespeare’s Globe Centre of Canada, the project will provide unprecedented artistic opportunities for Newfoundland theatre artists and provide the community with a new and unique cultural experience.

Our other big project has been preparing websites for The Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation ( www.bayrobertsculture.com ) and the “Holdin’ Ground Project” ( holdingroundproject.com )  In addition, we have developed a YouTube channel for the interviews from the Holdin’ Ground Project.  The students has saved the videos of their interviews, some of which were 30 minutes long  in DVD format. They were converted to AVI format and broken down into segments less than 10 minutes long (since YouTube will not accept videos which are longer than 10 minutes.)  Then those were uploaded to the Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation You Tube Channel –  www.youtube.com/user/bayrobertsculture > > and linked back to holdingroundproject.com

The interviews are a wonderful way to preserve the memories and knowledge of older citizens in the community.  Mr. Cecil Greenland at 104 is completely amazing, as well as Mr. Ralph Greenland, 80 who is a talented musician. This morning I am uploading stills from the videos to the Baccalieu Consulting Flickr > >.

In addition, we have updated all the Pigeon Inlet related material for the upcoming summer season.  The website for “A Time in Pigeon Inlet” ( www.pigeoninlet.ca ) with a new page about the Russell Family  and Uncle Mose’s Blog ( unclemose.wordpress.com ) are now ready for the new season.  We have set up “A Time in Pigeon Inlet” Fan Page on Face Book .
