community Call-out

Korean War Memorial

After an open call-out for design submissions for the new monument at Peace Park, we are down to three finalists and need your help!
Voting will open on June 4th and remain open until June 25th. The designer of the winning submission will be invited to unveil the monument at a future date and will also receive a gift card in the amount of $250.00.
The winning design will be submitted as part of a grant application to Veterans Affairs Canada’s Commemorative Partnership Program for Community War Memorial Funding to cover some of the costs.

The Aurora Museum & Archives is interested in collecting items in any format, this includes born-digital items such as images or documents that are created and published in digital formats. Or course, physical objects – both hand crafted and mass produced – are always a welcome addition to the Aurora Collection.

Aurora At Home

Did you know that during the early 1900s, families would regularly gather on their front porch for a photo? Now it’s your turn!

Help us document the self-isolation aspect of Aurora’s COVID-19 experience by creating your own front yard photo. Share your image to social media and use the hashtag #Auroraathome – together we will overcome this.
If you are not able to go outside, feel free to take a photo from inside your home – all images of Aurorans at home are welcome. No social media? No problem! Submit your at home portrait below
