From Earth Day, 2010 to the end of August, Sharon Kallis worked with a variety of community groups to create ephemeral installations in CRAB Park at the foot of Main as a Community Arts Council project. The canoe has been repaired and was re-installed in 2011.
Working with environmental artist Sharon Kallis, community members will come together and learn weaving skills while creating unique bird nests and perches out of dogwood, hardhack, blackberry and flag iris. Participants’ awareness of the local ecosystem will be increased as they enhance bird habitat and take an active environmental stewardship role in their local park.
Impromptu performance with the three structures created on Earth Day.
Thank you to the City of Vancouver Neighbourhood Matching Funds program for providing funding support for this program.
