Mushroom and Plant-Based Foray with Diane Borsato and SVIMSOct 26 | 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
Join us as we host a mushroom and plant-based foray, with artist Diane Borsato, and the Southern Vancouver Island Mycological Society’s (SVIMS) Kem Luther and Andy MacKinnon!
In relation to the exhibition Symbiosis, we’ll gather on the land, under the forest’s canopy and gather wild mushrooms and plants. During the foray, we will learn from the mycologists and Diane about the linguistic, cultural, edible, medicinal and ecological meanings of the collected mushroom and flora specimens. Rain or shine we’ll be out learning on the land with our mycological and artistic experts and we hope to see you there dressed for whatever weather we find that day. There will be an opportunity to hear from the curators of Symbiosis and Indigenous perspectives on interconnectivity of culture, land, flora and fauna.
This is an offsite workshop – (exact location TBD, ticket holders will be sent locations via email 5 days before the event).
Participants are recommended to bring a packed lunch and bottle of water.
