Haida Gwaii Museum AGM upcoming

  • May. 6, 2009 9:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Haida Gwaii Museum Society–The Haida Gwaii Museum Society will be hosting its Annual General Meeting on Sunday, May 24s at 1:00 pm, reporting on its first full year of operations in the new Haida Heritage Centre at Kaay llnagaay. The recently expanded space has created opportunities for new exhibits and programs related to Haida culture, islands’ biology and natural history as well as improved public access to the museum’s collections and archives of islands’ history. A new archives space, housing the museum’s extensive collection of photographs and documents related to the islands’ human and natural history, is being set up and organized and a major exhibit exploring 15,000 years of Haida Gwaii prehistory is now under development in partnership with Gwaii Haanas archaeologists. The museum’s new Temporary Exhibits Gallery offers an improved venue for showing the work of local and visiting contemporary artists. Needless to say, it’s an exciting time in the evolution of the museum which was founded in 1974.As a non-profit society we rely on public membership and support. Our board consists of representatives from each community on the islands with elections held at the AGM. We also have volunteers that provide support to staff in various capacities. If you’re interested in the work of the museum or would like to be involved, we invite you to attend the AGM on Sunday, May 24 at 1:00 pm at the Museum. For further information on how you can be involved contact the museum at 559-4643.
