The Resettlement of Grand Bruit

Solo exhibition

Christina Parker Gallery, 2010

Grand Bruit had remained one of the last true outport communities of Newfoundland and Labrador since the major resettlement programs between 1954 and 1975. Enduring the ebbs and flows of the fishery, fur markets and the migration of its youth, Grand Bruit struggled to survive since its settlement in the early 1800's. An incredibly isolated town, Grand Bruit is situated on the south coast of Newfoundland, at one time accessible only by a 3.5 hour passenger ferry or helicopter.
