Chapter 2A: Victoria, BC

First stop on our tour…check! In the short time that we’ve been here in beautiful (snowless) Victoria, BC, we managed to set-up, demonstrate, present and take-down seamlessly. Our venue here was the Victoria Native Friendship Centre. This centre provides resources and services for Aboriginal people in the greater Victoria area, such as youth initiatives, employment, health and social programs. We could not have asked for better hosts for the start of this tour and are so thankful for their hospitality.  Here are some shots of our time here:

One thing that I am trying out is to incorporate a more engaging piece at the end of my presentation. I do a lot of talking and although I interact with the audience a little bit, I wanted their voice to be heard. I decided to give the audience cue cards to write down issues that mattered to them or something that they would create to solve a problem. So far, I’ve received some interesting responses. I’m hoping to collect more to get a picture of what people are thinking in different communities.
