The Royal BC Museum is asking British Columbians to weigh in on what they want the future of the museum to look like.
Through a series of community engagement initiatives, such as community conversations, online information sessions, interactive tours and booths at various events across the province.
The museum will also launch a province-wide online survey.
“The Royal BC Museum truly belongs to the people of British Columbia, so we’re committed to ensuring people from all corners of the province feel welcomed, included and represented by their museum and archives,” said Royal BC Museum Acting CEO Tracey Drake in a release Thursday.
In particular, the museum says that it is interested in learning from participants what they want in terms of buildings, spaces and facilities, Indigenous Reconciliation and United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People’s implementation and diversity representation.
What the museum is calling Phase 2 of its community outreach is a multi-year, province-wide process that involves essential partners from First Nations, Urban Indigenous, Inuit and Metis communities.
The community engagement is expected to be completed by winter 2025.
