Lego Day

It’s time to get ready for another Lego Day kids.

In honour of Mayworks, an annual festival held each May to focus on Labour and the Arts, the Museum at Campbell River will host a Lego Day on Saturday, May 14, from 1-2:30 p.m.

Mayworks is a month long festival designed as a time to celebrate the struggles, accomplishments and culture of working class people.

In Canada, Mayworks Festivals are held annually in Hamilton, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Vancouver, and on Vancouver Island.  The Festivals are built on the premise that both workers and artists are major contributors to society and share a common interest in decent wages and safe working conditions.

Mayworks’ goal is to promote these interests and bring an awareness of workers in all areas to public consciousness.  To honour these goals of art and labour, Lego Day will have the theme of Machines That Help Us Work.

What kind of machine can your imagination build that might help us work?

The cost for Lego Day is $5. Call the Museum at 287-3103 to register.
