The Black Cultural Centre is an important resource for Nova Scotia to tell the story of African Nova Scotians and their important contribution to our province and country. It has been said that knowledge of past helps inform the future, and the Black Cultural Centre exists to further the understanding of the African Nova Scotian community. This is an important job and responsibility and we want to make sure this continues for years to come. That is why we have had to make tough decisions. The centre will be changing its operation hours during the fall/winter months, it will be open on an appointment basis for school trips, group tours and meeting room rentals. It is with regret that I bring news that we will be eliminating the position of Curator, Administrative Assistant, and Receptionist at the centre. The Black Cultural Society/Centre has taken stock of the current situation and made a difficult choice to focus on the long-term future of the centre, rather than looking for short-term fixes. After thoroughly assessing our options, operations and fiscal situation, we chose the option focused on sustainability and long term growth. Having to lose valued staff members who have been with the centre for so long is never ideal, and not a decision we made easily. The commitment and contribution of staff is not dismissed by this decision. Their contributions to this important Nova Scotian institution will always be cherished. But we need to make tough choices now to ensure that the centre is here to serve the community and the province well into the future. We want to be fair to everyone involved, while making sure the future is secure for the centre. These have not been easy decisions to make, but we believe they are the right ones to ensure that the centre is financially secure in the long term and able to be used by future generations. We will continue work with the community and our funding partners in the provincial government to ensure that the centre will be viable, utilized, and remain a touch-stone for African Nova Scotians and their history.
