The Thundermaker - Art Exhibit

Alan Syliboy’s ‘The Thundermaker’ multimedia art exhibit will be on display at the Springhill Miners Memorial Library, December 2nd to 19th.

Experience The Thundermaker, a multimedia art exhibit based on the story of Little Thunder. Through various forms of art, follow Little Thunder as he learns about his M’ikmaq identity through stories from his Mother and teachings from his Father, Big Thunder.

As a provider and soon-to-be Thundermaker, people can watch Little Thunder grow and discover how he made thunder for the first time. This exhibit will be on display at public libraries throughout Nova Scotia. For more information, visit www.thundermaker.ca.
