Please join us for a trailer screening and discussion about BURNOUT, a new immersive installation by Georgia Dawkin and Drew Pardy. Using textiles, video, and performance, these artists examine racing culture and terminology. Their playful critique explores how burnout and unrecognized labour are common experiences for many women and creative workers.

This is a free program but a ticket is required. Get your ticket online or by calling 709-757-8090. Admission to the galleries is included.

Kickstart your weekend by joining us at The Rooms! Spend Saturday mornings with your little ones in our charming Harbour View Room. It's a delightful opportunity for unguided playtime amidst a variety of toys and books tailored for toddlers aged 2 to 4.

There's no need to pre-register; simply pay your admission at The Rooms front desk and then drop in anytime between 10 am and noon and let the weekend festivities commence! 

While the activities are designed for children aged 2 to 4, younger kids are more than welcome. Caregivers are required to accompany their children throughout the session. Our program room can accommodate up to 20 adults with their little ones, but if it's full, caregivers are encouraged to step back momentarily to allow space for others to join in the fun.

The Playdate is included in the cost of admission. Free for Rooms Members.
