August 16, 2018: Making Wave[form]s

We are pleased to welcome special guests from Emily Carr University of Art + Design at this month’s Nocturnal!

Explore the value of our local waterways at Making Wave[form]s, the premiere screening of short videos by students from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design created through a class offered this summer in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation and in collaboration with the Native Education College. This screening event will be intermixed with interactive presentations led by the artists and public dialogue around the importance of healthy waterways. The event will include an exhibit of photographs by local knowledge keepers that participated in the projects, as well as student artwork on the theme of water.

As always, admission to our Nocturnal evenings will be by donation between 5:00 pm and 8:30 pm. This special screening will start at 5:30 pm in our auditorium, a museum tour will be available at 7:00 pm starting under the whale, and hands-on activities will be available throughout the museum all evening.
