Empowerment and Success
2022 Project: The aim of this project is to showcase Uplands’ educational collection by creating an inventory which will allow us to develop educational workshops. These workshops, in which local senior tea tradition experts will be key references, will contribute to the sustainability of this local tradition within its community, as well as the promotion of this linguistic minority heritage to a more diverse audience, such as younger generations.
About: Housed in a stately and elegant heritage house in Sherbrooke (1862), Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre combines history with local cultural and artistic traditions. The centre generates a sense of community spirit and acts as a base for creative activities for its members, its user groups and the community at large. Uplands is a unique cultural establishment – we exhibit the works of regional artists, the English tea experience (group rates), various cultural activities, as well as an impressive collection of antiques belonging to the Lennoxville-Ascot Historical and Museum Society.
