“We’ll meet outside the Gallery, grab some coffee, and find a nice place in the park to spread out. Is it okay if Ellen brings her dog?”
This was my introduction to working at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Almost two months after the province shut down and jobs for students all but dissolved, I was brought on as a summer student for a dream position at The AGGV. From the get go, the requirement of working remotely meant that I was walking into a position that was new to both me and to the Gallery. Since then, working online has opened up a realm of opportunities that I could never have anticipated.
