|The Françoise-Chamard-Cadieux Art Gallery
Formerly called the “Galerie du 2e”, the Françoise-Chamard-Cadieux Art Gallery was inaugurated on April 15, 2021.
By naming this art gallery after Françoise-Chamard-Cadieux, the Aberdeen Cultural Center pays tribute to a great Acadian woman who dedicated her life to the development of French and the rights of women in Acadia. With the complicity of Angela Bourgeois and thanks to their leadership and determination, a first French High school will see the light of day in the Greater Moncton area. Françoise will also be part of the group that will campaign for the creation in New Brunswick of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women and for the opening of a first shelter for abused women in Moncton. A lover of the arts and culture in general, the Aberdeen Cultural Center has been an essential place for her to showcase the artistic creation of Southeastern New Brunswick.
The Aberdeen Cultural Center recognizes that the land on which it is located is the unceded traditional territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’gmaq peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” that the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’gmaq first entered into with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties in question did not include a land surrender clause. and resources, but effectively recognized Mi’gmaq and Wolastoqiyik titles and set the rules for what should be enduring relationships between nations.
