I had the proud honor of introducing a group of high school students from Reynolds Secondary’s Flexible Studies Program.
Under the direction of teacher Brad Cunningham and with the support of the Royal BC Museum and Songhees Elders these students led the effort to push back the walls of their school, and use the opportunity to learn from and with their community.
Youth Echoing Truth is one of their remarkable projects. Through this initiative, 80 students explored the museum to find whose voices were underrepresented or misrepresented. They sought out underrepresented voices from our community and presented them to the public through the Youth Echoing Truth exhibits.
I encourage everyone to go see the Youth Echoing Truth exhibits for yourself. They will be on display at the Royal BC Museum until May 31st.
