Launch of Saskatchewan Doukhobor Living Book Project

We are very excited to announce our official launch dates for the Saskatchewan Doukhobor Living Book Project on Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan! After much dedicated work over the past few years on this project, the Canada Day long weekend will be the public unveiling of our efforts to preserve the oral history and spiritual traditions of the Doukhobor community in Saskatchewan:


Friday, June 28, 2019, 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm): Opening reception for the Saskatchewan Doukhobor Living Book historical exhibit and Spirit Wrestler Soundscape at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.


Tickets have been reserved for the launch event at the Western Development Museum (WDM) for everyone who participated in the project or donated to it. The WDM will contact donors and participants directly via email, and you will need to respond to their invitation to reserve your spot. If you are not a project participant or donor to the project and wish to attend the launch event at the WDM please email: SpiritWrestlerProductions@gmail.com to request tickets. They will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis as space allows.


The exhibit and Soundscape will be on display and open to the public during regular museum hours at the Saskatoon WDM from June 29th until October 20th. Further details are available on the WDM’s website


Saturday, June 29, 2019, 2:00pm (doors open at 1:15pm): Grand Premiere of the documentary film: "We've Concluded Our Assembly: The Saskatchewan Doukhobors" at the Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.


Complimentary tickets for the film have been reserved for everyone who participated in the project or donated to it, and those individuals will be receiving an email with details on how to claim their tickets for the film screening. If you are not a project participant or donor to the project and wish to attend the film launch, tickets for the film screening will be $10 per person ($5 for those 12 and under) and can be purchased in advance via Eventbrite. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door the day of the event but may be limited by capacity in the theatre. 


An additional screening of the film in Ottawa, Ontario is planned for later in 2019. Information about the Ottawa event, as well as details related to the distribution of the film by DVD and online will be available soon.


Please also note that the Blaine Lake Doukhobor Society and Doukhobor Society of Saskatoon will be co-hosting the annual Peter's Day celebration on the morning of Sunday, June 30th, 2019 starting at 10:30am at the Blaine Lake Doukhobor Prayer Home. The weekend promises to be a fitting opportunity to come together to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the Doukhobors arriving in Saskatchewan.


Thank you for your continued support of this project and we look forward to seeing you soon!


Sincerely,

Ryan Androsoff, Executive Director
