Dear BC Museums Association,

My name is Shayna Jones and I am a professional performance artist,
specializing in the oral storytelling of Afrocentric folklore and
contemporary experience. I am also the founder of a nationally funded
artistic inquiry called Black and Rural. The aim of Black and Rural is to
gather, honour, and showcase the reflections and insights of Canadians of
African ancestry tucked away on the countryside. Individuals who live
rurally at present, or who have in the past, are welcome to include their
voice through the following means:


   one on one conversation with me via phone or Zoom;

   an online survey;

   and/or through submissions of their own creative choosing (poetry, short
   stories, music, photography, etc.).

 The responses will be curated for inclusion on the Black and Rural legacy
website and also sculpted into a theatrical performance piece that will be
toured to rural and urban settings across Canada.

*We are actively looking for participants. *Please distribute this email
broadly and freely invite anyone you know who may be interested in
participating. They may connect to me and learn more about the project
through any of the following means*:*

from you.
