Fishing For Success and Rocket Bakery are marking the 25th anniversary of Newfoundland and Labrador’s cod moratorium with a series of events centered around sharing stories and skills related to our province’s fishing heritage.
On a sweltering Monday afternoon, just after school wrapped up for the summer, Cathia Finkle spread supplies for a simple printmaking project out on a large table in the back of Rocket Bakery. An Art Hives banner was strung above the table and people trickled in, filling the seats around the table.
Festival Director Ruth Lawrence pointed out that the province’s film industry has been flourishing recently, serving as home base for a number of big television and feature film productions. This success means there’s a lot to celebrate at the Nickel this year.
