As of September 2018, Still Moon Arts is beginning an artist residency at the Slocan Park Fieldhouse – one of the repurposed caretakers’ buildings in Vancouver that the Parks Board has transformed into studio space for artists. We will be using the studio to explore Eco-Art using gifts from the nearby Renfrew Ravine and Still Creek, in collaboration with Jolene Andrew of the Resurfacing History project which focuses on Indigenous cultural re-skilling. Redress is important to us, as we explore concepts like wildcrafting, ethical harvesting, right relations, mentorship, eldership, plant technology and ancient skills. This work all takes place on traditional Coast Salish territory, including land used since time immemorial by the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Tsleil-Waututh, and Sto:lo people. Join us on our journey off the beaten path!
We will be posting here regularly, but you can also find more info at http://www.stillmoon.org. You can follow us on facebook, twitter, and instagram @stillmoonarts and/or @alderecoarts
We hope to see you at one of our events or workshops!
