Culture at the Centre
March 18 – October 8, 2018

Culture at the Centre at the Museum of Anthropology and this satellite exhibition at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum offer insight into the important work Indigenous-run cultural centres and museums in British Columbia are doing to honour and support their culture, history, and language.

Five centres are showcased, representing six communities: Musqueam Cultural Education Centre (Musqueam), Squamish-Lil’wat Cultural Centre (Squamish, Lil’wat), Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre (Heiltsuk), Nisg̱a’a Museum (Nisg̱a’a) and Haida Gwaii Museum and Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay (Haida).

The Beaty Biodiversity Museum participated in this collaborative exhibition, working with representatives of the five centres to share their knowledge.

START: Pollinators
December 3, 2017 – May 6, 2018

Engage with the artwork of over 300 elementary and secondary students as they explore the importance and curious nature of pollinators. With the support of art mentors and teachers, participants from Edith Cavell Elementary, Highlands Elementary, Holy Trinity Elementary, Waverly Elementary, and Sutherland Secondary created museum exhibits to share their research into local environmental issues and promote positive change in their communities.

Science to Art (START) is a travelling museum project that inspires elementary and secondary students to design and create exhibits through intergenerational collaboration with art mentors.

Project curated by: Thanushi Eagalle. This initiative is funded by the UBC Chapman and Innovation Grant.
