Description:
In response to this year’s conference theme, Non SatisScire: To Know Is Not Enough, the AREA GSC is partnering with the SAME (Surrey Appreciates ME) Project to paint a community mural that is designed by Surrey School District 36 students and master muralist Michelle Loughery. This project will encapsulate the mission of the SAME project—to engage youth as mentor-leaders in community contexts while emphasizing anti-racism, belonging, diversity and inclusion. It will provide AERA participants a significant opportunity to have informal conversations with high school students from the Vancouver area’s largest school district. Such conversations may provide AERA participants deeper insight into the Surrey and Vancouver contexts and allow students to contribute and take significant pride in their community while working alongside AERA participants to provide a lasting legacy to the City of Surrey.

Please note: While no prior experience with painting is required, AERA members registering for this year’s GSC community service project should be willing to partner with one of the participating high school students and engage in occasional electronic communication with their student partner prior to the mural painting community service day. Participants will meet and work alongside their student partners during the CSP day. Confirmation and more detailed information will be provided following registration.

For questions please contact the GSC Program Chair, Robyn Carlson, at email: grgschool@aol.com.

Description:
The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is one of Vancouver’s cultural highlights, as well as one of Canada’s most significant buildings. Its architecture and collections are world-renowned, and it serves an important role as a research institution in the Lower Mainland.

Founded in 1949 in a library basement, the Museum is now located in a spectacular building overlooking mountains and sea. It houses over 38,000 ethnographic objects and 535,000 archaeological objects, many of which originate from the Northwest Coast of British Columbia.

Join the Graduate Student Council on this guided tour to discover BC’s indigenous heritage. We will be taking public transit to get a sense of how it feels to live in beautiful Vancouver.
