Orcas Virtual Gala

Join Dr. Daniel Muzyka, CEO, and Mischelle vanThiel, VP Inclusion and Community Engagement, Deputy CEO, to celebrate the opening of Orcas: Our Shared Future.

This first-of-its-kind virtual gala includes an interactive game of "Artifact or Artifiction”—a battle of wits with museum staff as you try to guess which artifact tales are true and which are false. Then, dive deeper into Orcas with a talk from artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, who will speak about his watercolour artwork, Orcinus Orca Skannaa, which is featured in the exhibition and combines perspectives often seen as separate: science, pop culture, Indigenous knowledge and ecological activism.
