Over the years, UBC INSTRCC students have been fortunate to collaborate with, and learn from, a diverse group of organisations from a variety of sectors on community-based projects. We are grateful for these partnerships that have enriched our students’ learning and professional development. 

As of July 2022, INSTRCC has partnered with: 

5 Museums, 3 Government Groups, 6 Educational Institutions, 13 Charities and Non-Profit Organisations, and a myriad of Community Filmmakers, Archivists, and Curators

Here’s what some of our partners have to say about working with us:

“Having INSTRCC students at Burnaby Village Museum has brought new and creative ideas to our institution. The students bring with them such a rich multi-disciplinary approach to our Museum that we have really learned quite a lot from them, not to mention how much I hope they’ve learned from us.”

Jane Lemke, Burnaby Village Museum

“We set a challenge for the INSTRCC students and they rose to it! Working with staff from the Garden and Chinese Canadian Museum, they developed ‘Chinatown, Existing’, a unique joint field trip about issues of immigration and identity. Their fresh approach to the topic and invaluable input and ideas meant we can offer a memorable experience for high school groups. We appreciated their creativity and professionalism and all that they contributed to the project.”

Claire Lloyd, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

“Working with the INSTRCC program has allowed us to collaborate with our community in wonderful new ways. The students bring cultural knowledge, awareness and sensitivity, language abilities and great digital skills to each project along with unlimited enthusiasm and energy. We look very forward to continue our journey of learning with them.”

Sheila Hill, Richmond Museum
