The provincial government is seeking feedback for a new museum that will share the history, culture and contributions of British Columbians with South Asian heritages.
“Public input, especially from South Asian communities, is vital to moving forward on this first-of-its-kind museum,” BC's Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport Lana Popham said in a news release.
Community-designed workshops and an online public survey will begin in early 2024.
The South Asian business community has deep roots in Greater Victoria and today more than 10,000 people in our region identify as having South Asian origins. Check out The Chamber's 1863 Project, and provide feedback to the province about the planned South Asian museum at engage.gov.bc.ca.
