Museum Happy Hour: Indi-genius

Drink, eat, meet and explore. Join us after work on select Thursdays for themed happy hours in one of our core galleries.

We've partnered with our friends from Open Space to bring you this evening exploration of the dynamic relationship between historical Indigenous art objects and contemporary Indigenous art practices.

As part of the Awakening Memory exhibit, contemporary artists Sonny Assu, lessLIE and Marianne Nicolson will be responding to cultural belongings within the Royal BC Museum collection.
