Memorial University of Newfoundland Extension Service Visual and Performing Arts
TitleMemorial University of Newfoundland Extension Service Visual and Performing Arts
Scope and Content of FondsThe official records of the Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) Extension Service are housed with the MUN Office of Records Management and University Archives. The papers associated with the Visual and Performing Arts Section of Extension were transferred to the Archives and Special Collections because of the latter's mandate to collect material related to Newfoundland and Labrador performing arts. Some overlap of material from this Section and Extension does exist. - The collection contains material (1959-1991) pertaining to both the operation and administration of the Visual and Performing Arts Section. There is correspondence and other documents related to the operation of 77 Bond Street, 345 Duckworth Street, and other working spaces considered for possible use by Extension Service. There is material, mostly class lists and registration information, pertaining to courses and workshops offered by the Section. Correspondence, reports and grant applications make up the bulk of the records on St. Michael's Printshop, the Community Artist Program and the Summer Art Program. Information on the work of the Visual and Performing Arts Section in the music community includes proposals, courses, correspondence, and reports on glee clubs and music camps. The material on crafts largely deals with the 1972 Craft Conference, however, some correspondence and miscellaneous material is also included. Material collected on art exhibitions includes publicity, reports and correspondence related to the Art Gallery, the Annex Gallery and various other places of exhibition. There is material related to the 1986 Arts Conference including information regarding its planning in 1985, funding, grant applications, correspondence, registration, attendance and publicity. There are financial records of the Visual and Performing Arts Section including budgets and grant proposals. Reports outlining the mission of the Section and its operation are also included in this collection. There is publicity material such as posters, articles and schedules for the Section as well as for related organizations and events such as the Resource Centre for the Arts and Sound Symposium. And finally, there are photographs and audio-visual material recording some of the activities of the Section. This collection provides an extensive account of the activities of the Visual and Performing Arts Section and would be of interest to those researching the development of the arts in Newfoundland and Labrador, especially in the 1970s and 1980s. It would also be of value to anyone interested in the history and operation of MUN Extension Service.
