The eco-art portion of our Future of Community Arts event is getting pretty exciting. Here’s some of what will happen:
Environmental Youth Alliance with CACV volunteers will be doing an environmental art creation using invasive/abundant materials and highlighting the Means of Production Garden at 6th & St. Catherine’s, which both EYA and CACV were involved with starting way back in 2003. Many thank you’s to community-engaged environmental artist Sharon Kallis who has given us all a new perspective on invasive species.
Karenza T. Wall and Rachael Campbell-Palmer will be among the CACV folk ready and willing to talk with you about our engagement with community-engaged environmental art – the Eco-Art Salons, our Trans/forms projects and our history with the Means of production garden and the Stanley Park Environmental Art Project.
Stream of Dreams Chief Inspirational officer Louise Towell and False Creek Watershed Society E.D. Celia Brauer and Shahira Sakiyama from St. George Creek and Greenway will be facilitating the creation of our own Stream of Dreams with silver salmon creation right by the beautiful water feature in the Atrium. Close by will be the Vancouver Society of Storytelling with a living room for you to sit and hear stories with tea – an intimate, cozy space as befits the medium.
Deer crossing the art farm with Sandy Buck will be down and using otherwise un-recyclable materials to create body cut-outs and hang them from a giant clothesline.
Not that the other groups and individuals aren’t concerned about the environment and nature, but these are some of the ones that have nature/environment as a major focus.
Food Not Bombs participant and CACV Volunteer Robin Pickell is helping to coordinate these groups and also set up an info table for Food Not Bombs.
