Fresh off the Ferry and excited about her new move to Gibsons is Kendra Fehr, the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives new Curatorial Assistant. Kendra just finished her Masters in Museum Education at the University of British Columbia, and before that she was a visual arts teacher for nine years in Beijing, China. A fun fact about Kendra is that she loves to travel and has now visited forty-three different countries. Actually, it was these travels that first piqued her interest in museums. She realized that she loved visiting museums as she explored new places because they were an accessible way to get an overview of culture and history of place. When she chose to move back to the motherland of Canada the museum world offered the exciting career change she was looking for. She hopes to play a key role in making the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives an engaging and accessible repository of artifact, image and story.
Welcome to the official blog of the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives in Gibsons, British Columbia. We're a small museum that strives to preserve and present the history of the beautiful area between Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet.
