North Van Arts invites North Shore residents, arts organizations, reporters, businesses, community organizations and more to the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre on Thursday, August 26th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.
Join artist, ethnobotanist and educator T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss on an interactive, guided forest walk.
“As we feel out the forest, sensitizing ourselves to the land, we will bring ourselves to a place of listening and witnessing. We will learn what it means to be stewards of the forest, and how to join our voices in solidarity with the land,” says North Van Arts.
Registration is recommended, but walk-ins are welcome on the day.
This event is held as an interactive component to the exhibition Stalkaya – Ḵ’elhmáy̓/X̱ápay̓ay, which features the video “SANCTUARY: The Dakota Bear Ancient Forest Experience,” created by Cease Wyss, Damien Gillis and Olivier Leroux.
You can visit the exhibition for free at CityScape Community ArtSpace until September 4th.
Cease Wyss is an educator, ethnobotanist, and media artist of Skwxwu7mesh, Stó:lō, Hawaiian, and Swiss descent. Trained by Indigenous knowledge keepers, she uses her art, her activism, and her teaching to raise awareness and bring about change.
