2018-Britannia Exhibit Volunteers 
Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site

Description

During the month of June, Britannia will be hosting a temporary exhibit titled 'The Suitcase: Intergenerational Healing through Traces of the Past.' This exhibit, by Lyana Patrick and Ashli Akins, explores Lyana's journey of memory, healing and reconciliation which began when she received her Gramma Aloo's suitcase after she has passed away. Inside were hundreds of paper cutours, beads and other items that were used to make moccasins and gloves. Gramma Aloo's story began to unfold through Lyana's storytelling with Ashli over tea.

We are looking for volunteers interested in talking with the public about this exhibit, answering questions and making sure the pieces remain safe. No prior experience is necessary, however an interest in Art is an asset.

Please sign up for the shifts you are able to fulfill. Ideally, we're looking for volunteers who can take multiple shifts since there is some training involved.

Training will be provided. Once you sign up, you will be contacted to complete a Police Information Check (a standard for all volunteers).

If you have any questions, please contact Lynsey at 604 238-8037 or lli@richmond.ca
