Event description

Description

Anne Riley and T’uy’tanat Cease Wyss will introduce workshop participants to their current public art project at the Native Education College commissioned by the City of Vancouver called A Constellation of Remediation, which consists of Indigenous Remediation Gardens planted throughout the city decolonizing and healing the dirt back to soil. This project focuses on plants and fungi as remediators. The workshop will be a tour of the plants on the NEC campus while considering the performativity of text, and participants will be invited to make poem seed bombs: a love letter to dirt/soil.

Instructors: Anne Riley, Cease Wyss
Venue: Native Education College
Date: Sunday, March 10, 2019, 3:00pm – 5:30pm
Cost: $15
