Nautical Nights Speaker Series: Lucky Budd - April
Our Nautical Nights Speaker Series programs are delivered in a hybrid model: an in-person event at our 744 Douglas St. location, and a simultaneous Zoom Meeting. After purchasing a Zoom program ticket, you will receive a link for the Zoom Meeting directly days prior to the event,
In-person or by Zoom, enjoy the Maritime Museum of BC's Nautical Nights Speaker Series. This series focuses on discussion about our unique maritime heritage, culture, and environment! Each month features a new speaker and topic.
APRIL'S SPEAKER: ROBERT "LUCKY" BUDD
Oral History in British Columbia
Recorded oral history in British Columbia starts with CBC radio producer Imbert Orchard. From 1959 to 1966, Orchard travelled the province and recorded 998 First Generation and First Nations people and created one of the largest oral history collections in the world. In 2000, the CBC entrusted the digitization of the collection to Robert “Lucky” Budd. Budd will share his story, stories from the collection, and share details on his books Voices and Echoes Of British Columbia. He will then discuss his storytelling work with First Nations artist and master storyteller Roy Henry Vickers. It will be a great evening of storytelling and learning.
The in-person portion of this event is a live screening at 744 Douglas Street, downtown Victoria. As this is an indoor organized group recreational class, as of September 13th the provincial government has mandated that the Maritime Museum of BC will require proof of vaccination. MMBC will continue to comply with this mandate until it has been lifted.
