BCMA Book Club

Over eight sessions, participants will read through Honouring the Truth and Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the TRC alongside BCMA team members, Lorenda and Leia. The purpose of this series of online discussions is to be part of cultural heritage professionals’ decolonization efforts and to utilize existing resources. Education on topics and histories resulting from colonialism is critical if the sector is to move forward in reconciliation.
