Experience the Centre

interactive wall

The Centre is an immersive experience, with technology and tools to help guide discussions and learning. Find out what makes the Centre so unique. 

The interactive technology makes the exhibition space at the Centre a dynamic environment to learn and engage with the legacy of residential schools. Take control of the experience and use one of the three interactive screens to explore digital materials, a historical timeline, listen to Survivor testimony and more. 

Kiosks and research stations are available to browse the collections privately, do further research, or look at interactive exhibitions from partners such as the Legacy of Hope Foundation. Self-guided activities and dialogue cards are available to help visitors think and reflect while in the space.

Visit the Elders Lounge on the upper level for more private access and reflection or for those needing emotional support. Take a moment to engage and reflect on what makes the Centre a truly unique experience. 

Engage with Centre staff for assistance finding records, research support, or reference questions. Contact irshdc.reference@ubc.ca with questions and to make an appointment for a consultation.
