Over 2014-17, the Windsor Armouries is becoming part of the new home of the University of Windsor’s School of Creative Arts and the former Greyhound Bus Depot a part of the University’s downtown campus. To celebrate the important community legacy of these public spaces, the IN/TERMINUS Creative Research Collective is launching the Armouries RE:Collect project to collect images and stories about the history of the Armouries Building and Greyhound Bus Depot. We seek contributions from community members of photographs and personal memories of events or activities that took place at either venue, from their opening up to the recent closure in preparation for construction.

The photographs, audio, and video recordings will comprise the basis of an electronic archive, to be made publicly accessible as a website. From this archive we will select photographs highlighting a variety of events that took place in and around the buildings. These images will be reproduced, enlarged, and mounted on aluminum street signs within the vicinity of the new School of Creative Arts and throughout the downtown’s cultural corridors. Additionally an exhibition of these photographs will take place in 2017 when the new premises open. We welcome a range of contributions, from casual, personal snapshots to officially staged portraits.

We are inviting the general public to contribute by uploading your photographs.

Please click here and fill out the form (it will take less than 2 minutes).
