Relocation Project

Collaborative Survey

The Rural Pre-Medicine program at Selkirk College is helping out the Gallery Relocation Project. Third year students Ava Merrill, Emma Russell and Ariel Stuart, supervised by their college instructors,  are conducting a survey that will provide useful data to us and a practical learning opportunity for themselves. The Gallery is grateful to Takai Larsen, the students and the Rural Pre-Medicine Program for this initiative.

To take part in the survey, in QR Code Mode, point your cell phone camera at the QR code or follow the link here
