Royal BC Museum seeking First Nations submissions for spring journal

The Royal BC Museum and Archives invites submissions from First Nations community members from across British Columbia for the 2017 spring issue of the journal Curious.

Submissions should explore the theme of belonging: what does it mean to find yourself, your family and your community in the Royal BC Museum and Archives collections? The Museum is especially seeking submissions that reflect the diverse range of experience that BC First Nations community members have when visiting the Royal BC Museum collections, either online or in person.

The deadline to express interest to participate is January 15, 2017. Send an email to guest editor Francine Cunningham at cunningham.curious@gmail.com with your name, contact information and a brief description of your idea. We can accept up to 20 submissions for the issue, and will be providing a small honorarium.
