The “Two Arts” virtual exhibit on the EBSNS blog is now winding down. We want to thank all those who bought prints for their generous support. We raised about $1,000 for our upcoming projects. There are still prints available and to find out more about Natallia Povaliayeva’s wonderful EB-inspired drawings, you can check them out under the “Two Arts” link on the blog. We hope that 2021 will be such that the EBSNS, and all the other organizations and groups who had to cancel events this year, will be able to meet again. Stay safe and be kind.


Today, 20 June 2020, would have been the EBSNS Annual General Meeting in Great Village, N.S., but because of pandemic restrictions the meeting was cancelled. The society must still present its reports, which can be viewed below by clicking on the links. EBSNS Financial Report; EBSNS Nominating Committee Report; the President’s Report will be posted as soon as it is available.



The Society is presenting “Two Arts,” a collection of EB-inspired drawings by Natallia Povaliayeva, on its blog. This exhibit will be active, with an accompanying fund-raiser, until the end of August. After August, it will still be possible to purchase prints of the images — go to the blog and learn more.


Due to the covid-19 pandemic and the strict public health measures in place in Nova Scotia and around the world, the EBSNS is cancelling its 2020 Annual General Meeting that would have taken place on 20 June. The society will post its Financial, Nominating Committee and President’s Reports on this website in late June. We regret not to be able to host our guest speaker Laura Churchill Duke this year, but she will be able to join us in 2021. We will be issuing our 2020 newsletter as usual, sending it to our members by email. We will also post an update about our exhibit of and fund-raiser with Natallia Povaliayeva’s work sometime in May. We hope everyone stays safe and well and follows the instructions of public health officials, as we try our best to flatten the curve and mitigate the worst effects of the corona virus. Take good care. EBSNS Board.
