“Food will be what brings the people together.” - Secwepemc Elder William Jones ‘Wolverine’ Ignace

What does a just transition to building a regenerative practice look like in the arts? In this exhibit, guest curator Dawn Morrison of Wild Salmon Caravan draws upon a creative arts practice embedding Indigenous perspectives of regeneration, sustenance, and life spirit.

A regenerative practice moves away from linear, production-oriented thinking and shifts towards holistic perspectives. It is a life-giving paradigm to regenerate society, reflect on our daily lives and give ourselves time to work and heal in different ways.

“The life cycle of wild salmon provides a powerful metaphor for a regeneration of life spirit.” -Dawn Morrison

Inspired by these ideas of a regenerative practice, this exhibition explores a selection of community-engaged arts to push the boundaries between art, culture, food, and life spirit.
