‘Words Rising, Birds Rising: A Coast Salish Artists Residency’ brings an Indigenous lens to understanding local birds and coincides with the 27th International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver. The residency runs to August 29, 2018. Built around an abstracted thunderbird nest, the artists will explore cultural knowledge of birds through performance, weaving, language, video, sound and poetry.
At the reception Christie Charles of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nation, Charlene George of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) Nation and Wil George of the Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation will present works curated by media artist and educator Kamala Todd.
