In solidarity with Brazil’s Museu Nacional

Our hearts go out to the Museu Nacional after the tragic loss of tens of millions of artifacts in a fire. For us in BC right now, it is a moment to be grateful that our heritage and historic institutions stand a safe distance from fires. The importance of digitizing and caring for the collection cannot be overstated, which is why we are working tirelessly to ensure that the artifacts, photographs, and archives are well preserved.
