Event Details

The Vancouver Park Board is collaborating with the Roundhouse to host an artists-in-residence project that brings a local Indigenous arts lens to exploring birds on the Northwest coast. The project coincides with the 27th International Ornithological Congress (August 19-30, 2018) in Vancouver. The IOC will bring bird scholars and enthusiasts from around the world to Vancouver, to participate in bird-focussed events, discussions, and activities. Our project seeks to enlarge this event with essential local cultural and creative context while sharing knowledge and fostering new understandings, connecting Indigenous knowledge and creative practice to ecological, social, and other cultural explorations of birds.
