UFV invites you to share your family memories to mark the centenary of the First World War.
On the centenary of the first Canadian military expedition to the battlefields of Europe, the University of the Fraser Valley’s Great War Day: Local Experiences and Legacies provides an exceptional opportunity to learn about the Fraser Valley’s connections to the First World War through the display of memorabilia, historical artifacts, military or civilian representations, local memories and commemorative projects (e.g., whether personal, academic, public or museological); and to understand and appreciate the local legacies of the war by way of reflective exhibits, artistic or creative works, and academic interpretations. Our mission and purpose of this event is to learn about the war through the experiences of those who lived through it, at home and away, and to encourage critical reflection on the causes, conduct, and consequences of this catastrophic and transformative event.
At the Great War Day, you will have the opportunity to:
- Learn about how diverse groups of people in the Fraser Valley participated directly or indirectly in the First World War;
- Learn about the immediate and longer term impacts of the war on local life; and
- Share with other Fraser Valley residents and communities your personal or familial reflections on the impact and legacies of the war
We want you to participate in our event. Become an exhibitor! Details available at ufv.ca/greatwarday
