For one of the first times in history, the Royal BC Museum has handed over curatorial authority to the community for the creation of the exhibit, “Hope Meets Action: Echoes Through the Black Continuum.” The session explores the challenges: What felt hard and new? The opportunities: What felt exciting and new? And what’s next: What advice do panellists have to share for institutions and communities that want to work together to centre the voices of those who have been historically and also presently silenced?
