Dining With Friends

In conjunction with the Royal Alberta Museum, the Friends of Royal Alberta Museum Society (FRAMS) continues to host dinners in the community, celebrating and exploring the diverse flavours of Alberta.

Join us as we close a chapter of our popular culinary series Dining With Friends. We say goodbye to Linda Tzang, former RAM Curator of Cultural Communities, and co-founder of DWF. Originally a complement to Chop Suey on the Prairies, a RAM feature exhibition, over the years DWF has provided Friends many opportunities to gather and explore a wide variety of cuisines. DWF will continue but Linda is moving on to other professional initiatives.

Linda has agreed to a celebratory, farewell dinner – provided it is also a fundraiser for FRAMS’ Go! Program, which provides free RAM  admission passes to low income Albertans.

We hope you will join us for Linda’s last dinner!

For Carrol and Norm Kluthe, the path to membership came via DWF.
“We saw the information about the dinners,” notes Norm, “and thought we’d give it a try. We’ve hardly missed one since then – and we became FRAMS members in the process.
We like being able to try many different types of food – as well as meeting so many interesting people over dinner.”  

The brainchild of Linda Tzang, RAM’s curator of cultural communities, Dining With Friends (DWF) was initially offered to complement the museum’s successful Chop Suey on the Prairies exhibition. Since then, diners have been exploring cuisines from around the world at our quarterly events.

The program has been an outstanding success –providing entertaining and educational programming out in the community while also making many new friends for RAM and FRAMS. It’s quickly become a member favourite, even selling out before tickets are released to the general public.

FRAMS is proud to publish Alberta Quiltmakers and their Quilts.

By author and Royal Alberta Museum curator Lucie Heins, this book tells the province’s history through quilts held in public and private collections.
