The Niagara Falls History Museum will open its Winter 2022 Film Series with a collection of films and presentations focused on women’s stories.
The series, which takes place every other Thursday from January 13 to March 10, is accompanied by a new exhibition of the same nature, “A woman’s work is never finished”.
The series will be hosted by film critic and writer Joan Nicks.
The films will be shown on the big screen at the museum at 5810 Ferry St. Films will begin at 6:45 pm and end with a short discussion. Admission is free for museum members and $ 5 for non-members.
The museum’s new exhibit will run from January 29 to November 13. She provides a better understanding of women throughout history, seeking to celebrate their diversity within the workforce and highlight the strengths of women in the community.
The exhibit is a production of the Niagara Falls Museums Curatorial Team, using both the history and contemporary culture of Niagara Falls to tell a story of women’s empowerment.
Objects from the museum’s collection and the stories of Niagara Falls women will be on display and woven together to achieve this.
