Communities + Collections
This season’s installment of the Communities + Collections Series focuses on the theme of Land, Water, and Place, inspired by the exhibitions Picturing the Giants: The Changing Landscapes of Emily Carr, Point of Contact: On Place and the West Coast Imaginary and Water Work Space. A significant component of this series centers around the ongoing community conversations that we’ve been hosting since June 2016.
Our current exhibition, Water Work Space, explores issues related to the vast and mighty topic that is water. Water as a resource. Water as a site of trade and exchange. Water and climate change. This space functions much like a Research + Development Department, part workshop/part exhibition space, in which you are invited to contribute your ideas and experiences about the project during the run of the exhibition until January 7th.
We also invite community groups, organizations, and individuals to use the space for meetings, gatherings, and workshops. If you are interested in booking a time for a group to use the space, please contact Nicole Stanbridge, Curator of Engagement to discuss activity requirements, availability, and bookings: firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of this series, we will be hosting another community conversation on November 2 called The Gallery as Authority? Part 2: PLACE. Join us as we talk about the work we do in arts and culture on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen Peoples. What work needs to be done and how do we do it?
There are no fees for these programs, although registration may be required. Check out our event calendar for more information on this series and other programs.
