The Many Nations Mini-Galleries project consists of two display cases built explicitly to display art. The Mini-Galleries will host artwork by local Burnaby artists from diverse backgrounds. During its launch at the Burnaby Festival of Learning, the Mini-Galleries will be situated outside South Burnaby Neighbourhood House. The galleries will display a scannable QR code to access expanded information about the art and the artists.

The United Way of Lower Mainland funded the Mini-Galleries’ construction through their Local Love funds. Emily Carr University of Art and Design has contributed finishing funds towards this project. The Mini-Galleries are currently stewarded by a resident committee and supported by the Burnaby Neighbourhood House.

The galleries will display a scannable QR code to access expanded information about the art and the artists.

Please join for an accompanying artists’ talk with featured artists Seham Gedrabo (Libya) and Amber Ross (Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation and a member of Crow Clan) to learn about their art and process. For artists’ talk SIGN UP HERE
