Images of War School Program

PAMA delivered a war poster school program that encouraged Grade 8 and 10 students to view the posters oPicture 22n display on PAMA, discuss themes and poster designs, and how they convey a message, stereotypes and symbols.
As part of the program, students interviewed a veteran about his war experiences. The Dominion Institute of Canada, through The Memory Project , coordinated local veterans who were interested in speaking to students and sharing their stories.

The combination of oral history, archival records and art was an overwhelming success, with hundreds of students participating.
