Welcome to the Gordon Smith Gallery located on the traditional territories of the Squamish and Tsleil Waututh Nations.
The exhibit Memory • History • Story provides students, educators and visitors with a resource to look at the way we, as individuals and as larger communities, learn. Recently, the B.C. Ministry of Education developed new curriculum with a focus to indigenize all areas of learning. This change means not only adding and altering content in the various subject areas but also the methods used to teach these subjects.
As students and the public visit this exhibit, we hope as educators and curators, that the dialogue about the historical and current issues of Indian Residential Schools in Canada and the long work of reconciliation that is in Canada’s future expands for these visitors.
this exhibit runs September 29, 2017 - April 26, 2018
