Nocturnal: Living Legends of Vancouver

Explore our relationships with waterways across Metro Vancouver at Living Legends of Vancouver: a premiere screening of short videos by students from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

Created through a class offered this summer in association with the David Suzuki Foundation and the University of Cape Town’s Future Water Institute.

Inspired by the late Mohawk/English poetess Pauline Johnson’s book Legends of Vancouver (1911) which documents stories shared by the late Chief Joe Capilano of the Squamish Nation about local lands/waters, these videos explore the intersections of past, present and diverse perspectives to create new narratives that speak to a water sensitive future.

This screening will be intermixed with interactive presentations and dialogue led by the artists, and will run from 5:30pm – 7:30pm

The museum will be open until 8:30pm, with admission by donation
