Launch of Saskatchewan Doukhobor Living Book Project

Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for the launch of the Saskatchewan Doukhobor Living Book Project on June 28th and 29th in Saskatoon! A wonderful crowd of over 200 people from near and far joined us over the course of the weekend for the events at the Western Development Museum and the Broadway Theatre to launch the project. We were truly honoured by the positive reactions and comments about the exhibit and soundscape at the WDM and the documentary film which premiered at the Broadway Theatre.


The historical exhibit and soundscape will be on display and open to the public during regular museum hours at the Saskatoon Western Development Museum until October 20th. DVDs of the documentary film and audio CDs of the songs from the prayer service recording are available for purchase at the Saskatoon Western Development Museum gift shop. High definition quality versions of the documentary film are available to purchase by digital download via Vimeo at the following link: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/doukhobor

We sincerely thank you for your support over the past three years of this project. We hope that it will help preserve the memory and legacy of our ancestors for future generations, and help us start a conversation about the future of Doukhoborism for generations to come!


Sincerely,


Ryan Androsoff and Ashleigh Androsoff
