Georgina Pope Exhibition
Start date: 12 October, 2017
End date: 29 December, 2017
Georgina Fane Pope was a pioneer in the field of nursing, having served in the Boer War and World War I. On this 100th anniversary of WWI, Eptek Centre commemorates her great contribution and that of other early nursing sisters.
Nature of the Project Reach
This exhibition will be on display in Summerside in late autumn 2017 and be available to other PEI venues in 2018. In addition to visitors from PEI, out-of-province visitors could also have a chance to view this exhibition
- recognize Georgina Pope's place in Canadian history
- commemorate the contribution of Pope and others to nursing
- raise awareness of the ground-breaking activities of Pope and other Canadian women
We look forward to collaborating with national institutions in order to bring additional artefacts to PEI for this exhibition. We also hope to bring local school groups to the Centre to supplement their Social Studies curriculum.
