MOA has and continues to follow the advice of the provincial authorities to open in a prudent and safe manner. We continually coordinate with UBC, the Faculty of Arts, as well as other departments across campus. We have developed, implemented and continue to adjust protocols in order to safely welcome our visitors and staff, in accordance with all provincial health directives.

At MOA, our mission is to promote awareness and understanding of culturally diverse ways of knowing the world. We encourage you to keep culture, art and heritage in your daily lives, while you care for your well-being in these difficult times.
