Origin Studios pleased to share the news that The Rooms’ Where Once They Stood We Stand Capital Campaign has received generous donations from Fortis Inc. and Newfoundland philanthropist Elinor Gill Ratcliffe. Much of this funding will be put towards the new Royal Newfoundland Regiment Gallery at The Rooms Museum in St. John’s, Newfoundland, which will be the largest exhibition dedicated to the First World War in Canada. We congratulate The Rooms on their continuing success and, as the exhibit designers for this important project, we look forward to creating an exhibition with the museum’s dedicated staff that will honour the legacy of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who contributed to the war effort on the home front.
