Welcome to Burnaby Central

Burnaby Central recently unveiled a 10’ 10” Coast Salish red cedar welcome post created by Musqueam artist in residence Brent Sparrow Jr and students. It depicts the figure of a matriarch, hands raised in welcome and will be installed at the entrance of the school. The welcome post represents recognition and respect and is a permanent symbol of reconciliation to be treasured and shared today and with future generations. This project was made possible through an Art Starts grant. LEARN MORE
