On March 23, 2017 from 5-7pm the Royal BC Museum hosted a Happy Hour. Sonny Assu, lessLIE, and Marianne Nicolson joined curator France Trépanier in the First Peoples Gallery. Using historical artifacts from the collection as reference points, they engaged in conversation with guests. Many meaningful thoughts and stories were shared.
The Opening event hosted by Open Space on March 24 was a great success.
Many people gathered to watch the Cowichan Tzinquaw Dancers. The three artists and curator shared comments with guests. It was an exciting evening.
