The Maritime Museum of British Columbia’s Remembrance Day Human Library program will run on the afternoon of November 11th, 2023, from 1:30 – 3:30 PM, with admission by donation. The Museum will otherwise be closed to admissions that day for the statutory holiday.
About the program
This Human Library program is an opportunity to talk to two service members with unique service histories and trades. In group conversations, explore memories, stories, and technical expertise.
“The idea of a Human Library is that instead of books, visitors in groups get to talk to multiple people with specific lived experiences, each for a set amount of time before beginning a new conversation,” said Events and Development Manager Anya Zanko.
Two service members, CPO1 Jonathon Sorensen and Lt(N) Michelle Scott, will join participants for this program, and run 2 parallel sessions of 30-minute conversations; there will be a break in between each session.
Admission to this program is by donation. We will have hot chocolate and a break between conversations.
