Share this event:

Wait for Me, Daddy by Claude Detloff is one of the most recognized photographs in the world and has become iconic for New Westminster. The photograph, which became integral to Canada's effort in WWII, was taken 75 years ago this October. To celebrate, the City of New Westminster is presenting a contemporary response to the classic image.

Saturday, October 3rd
1:00 PM
Hyack Square

Join Mayor and Council to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the day the "Wait for Me, Daddy" photo was taken. The program will include the unveiling of the official dedication plaque, an interpretive panel and the donor halo recognizing the generous donors who helped fund the project.

Saturday, October 3rd
2:00 PM & 7:00 PM
Anvil Theatre

Join us at Anvil Theatre on October 3rd for three exhilarating performances that honor the Wait for Me, Daddy photograph with a contemporary spin. The event will feature composer Brian Garbett and the University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, a community-engaged theatre work by Jan Derbyshire, and a collection of interdisciplinary mash-ups curated by Brief Encounters. Not to be missed!

*Please note that Brief Encounters performances contain mature content and may be sensitive to some audiences as they contain scenes of war and conflict.
