Nordic Spirit: The Danes in British Columbia

New Westminster, BC – The New Westminster Museum and Archives is very pleased to announce that the travelling photographic exhibit, Nordic Spirit: The Danes in BC, is now on display in the museum’s gallery until September 4th.

The exhibit provides a vibrant visual record of the early times of the hardy Danish settlers who came to the west coast of British Columbia as well as those who came later. Included in the exhibit are images from Burnaby, Cloverdale and New Westminster. Also told is the Cape Scott Story, the heroic struggle to establish a Danish community at the rugged northwest tip of Vancouver Island.

The exhibit is made possible by the Scandinavian Cultural Society, the Danish Canadian Community Centre and the BC Gaming Commission.
