Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases, Carr House is temporarily closed to the public. Updates about reopening will be posted to this website.
Join RBCM@Outside host Liz Crocker and John Adams, historian and owner of Discover the Past, for a virtual walk around Emily Carr’s Victoria neighbourhood. We’ll start at national historic site Carr House where artist Emily Carr was born and grew up. At Carr House we’ll meet site manager Kate Kerr for a quick chat about the significance of the house in Emily’s life. Next, we’ll head around the corner to Emily’s House of All Sorts where she painted and ran an apartment house. After a short walk, we’ll finish up in front of a former nursing home (now the James Bay Inn) where Emily was a patient at the time of her death in March 1945.
