Sunday School is a woven reproduction of a large-scale image of several children attending Sunday School at Union United Church. This photograph, taken in 1941, is a central piece in the exhibition. Several members of the church, along with Nancy Oliver-MacKenzie, took the initiative to create a numbered display to invite church regulars to write down the names of children they recognized. This image, which is over 80 years old, leads to several reflections on the need to pass on knowledge from one generation to the next. As most of the people in the picture are unfortunately no longer with us, how can we ensure that their experiences are not forgotten?
