Next summer, a public art installation entitled Blue Circle, celebrating the Saint John / Wolastoq River, will complete the Victoria Circle Roundabout.

The art installation by Marlene Hilton Moore is part of the Fredericton City Centre Plan implementation that recognizes the importance of Victoria Circle as a principal gateway into Fredericton’s downtown.

A selection panel comprised of arts professionals, members of the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee and a representative of Downtown Fredericton, chose the piece by Marlene Hilton Moore from over 50 submissions nationwide.

Summer Intern 2020

Ziigwen Mixemong

The Friends of Wiidookdaadiwin would like to thank Beausoleil First Nation for their sponsorship of a summer intern. Through their Post- Secondary Summer Student Employment Program, Ziigwen Mixemong joins us for another year.

Our summer interns are vital to the work we do. From technological assistance to meeting and thanking donors, our summer interns do it all. Mixemong will also be able to generate new skills that will ultimately help her enter the workforce through her interaction with our board.

Again, we would like to thank Beausoleil First Nation for their continued partnership and the sponsorship of our summer intern.
