Multiple four-week-long workshops are offered throughout the year. Each series allows learners to deepen their connection to ideas inspired by the museum. The workshops are facilitated by museum staff and community members.
Qwal Qwal: Let’s Talk
This four-week workshop will explore one of the key elements of identity: language. What is your mother tongue, and what does that mean? How is language developed? How does it shape the way you see the world? What are the languages heard and spoken inBritish Columbia?
Drawing on content from the Our Living Languages exhibition and co-facilitated by a novice Hul’q’umi’num’ speaker, we will explore these questions and more.

Who Were They Anyway? Digging into Local History
This four-week workshop will be an opportunity to investigate the lives of historical and forgotten Victoria residents, up close and personal. Who were they? How did they live? What motivated them?
This social history workshop will consider these questions and more, examining clues found in photographs, documents and artifacts within the museum’s collections and archives.
