The Stewart Museum
offers a series of activities developed in partnership with The Research Group on the History of
Sociabilities (GRHS) in conjunction with
the exhibition Paris on Display: 18th-Century Boutiques. Conferences and workshops will allow participants to explore the many
facets of social and cultural life in the 18th century.
These activities are offered free of charge, with the exception of In the Kitchen of the Enlightment (Dans la cuisine des Lumières), a French-language conference-workshop being held on February 17, 2019.
By actress Geneviève Rochette
In conjunction with Les Journées de la culture
Discover the 18th century through the words and stories of the era. Reading excerpts from archival documents, actress Geneviève Rochette will take us back to 18th-century Paris, from the small bourgeois pleasures to the full-blown hostilities of the Revolution. Each reading is followed by a musical performance of 18th century works from the French classical repertoire.
Spaces available: 40 for each public reading
Free 👉 RSVP on Eventbrite
Sunday September 30, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For a day, Marie-Josée Poisson, author of Book 1 and 2 of Liées par le sang (Éditions La Semaine), will be the Stewart Museum’s special guest. With the history of New France at the core of Ms. Poisson’s storytelling, the museum’s collections have proven a true source of inspiration. The novelist will share insights about her creative process with her readers during her book-signing.
