What is a passion project? For us, it’s about community. As an agency based in Cumberland BC, we’ve helped develop websites for many local businesses here. We also eagerly anticipate Cumberland Bakery donuts at our weekly team meetings, and we fill up our Growlers after every website launch with the great folks at the Cumberland Brewery!
Giving back to Cumberland and our region of Vancouver Island is equally as important to us. We’ve donated our time and resources to projects that showcase and enhance our local culture and economy. Miners Memorial is one passion project we’re honoured to have been a part of.
For 33 years the Cumberland Museum & Archives has co-hosted an annual commemoration of fallen workers, highlighting labour history and contemporary labour issues.
2018 marked the hundred-year anniversary of the death of Albert ‘Ginger’ Goodwin, one of the most well-known labour activists in the history of our country, and as part of the celebrations we took on the build of the Miners Memorial website that promotes this epic annual event.
Check out Ginger’s Funeral Procession video on the home page and you might spot The Update Company’s Director Nick Ward as a Pallbearer.
