Sunday, May 16, 2:00PM | “Birding with Liam!” Featuring Special Guest Liam Singh
When May arrives in Victoria, so do birds from all parts of the world. Their migration is our special guest Liam Singh’s flight of fascination, and we will be sharing a very special Family Sunday video where you can learn all about the feathered folk who make Vancouver Island their home. Check out Liam Singh’s biography below and keep your eye on our YouTube channel! for the the ‘flight’ of our next Family Sunday video being released on May 16!
Hi! My name is Liam Singh, I am 18 years old. I have been fascinated by birds since I was 9 years old. Their beautiful plumages and complex songs captured my interest and I’ve been hooked ever since. I look forward to sharing some of these spectacular species with you as your Family Sunday special guest. I hope you’ll find the Vancouver Island spring bird migration as fascinating as I do. See you (virtually) then!
You can also check out our growing collection of cool, inspiring, Family Sunday videos to check out featuring wonderful local artists on our YouTube channel!
Family Sunday happens every third Sunday of the month October – June, and is an afternoon of exploring hands-on art-making and ideas for all ages. This recurring program often features special guests like storytellers, artists, performers or musicians.
Also, enjoy this special offering from our June 2020 Family Sunday… A free coloring book created by the Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society! The colouring book (featuring artists Natassia Davies and Sarah Jim) supports Indigenous Language learning so be sure to download this wonderful tool ahead of time (see link below and check out the video featuring the Collective here). This program is part of our new digital arts initiative, FIELD TRIP: ART ACROSS CANADA.
The Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society was founded in March of 2019 to provide advocacy, mentorship, and further opportunity for Indigenous Artists. During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective wanted to find a way to reach out to folks of all ages currently in lockdown. The idea for the colouring book has grown far beyond its modest inception, and it has become a wonderful tool for supporting Indigenous Language learning. Three volumes of the books are planned, with a final expanded compilation volume planned for later this summer.
