2015-10-10 - 2015-11-01 All dayFrom October 10 to November 1 at the Roundhouse Community Centre Great Hall in Yaletown at 181 Roundhouse Mews (Davie & Pacific), Vancouver. Phone 604-713-1800 Over the past few decades many artists and activists on BC’s coast have been moved by the struggle of wild Pacific salmon to healthfully inhabit the waters in and around our now extensively developed urban environment. With settlement of the last century, the salmon’s old home streams had disappeared and now lay beneath the buildings and blacktop of major cities like Vancouver. The salmon is a powerful metaphor for bringing deeper meaning and understanding of the characteristics of strength and resiliency in their ability to overcome many odds along their journey to the ocean and home again to pay out their lives in birth and death. Our ability to adapt to the rapidly changing climate and water conditions, and respond to the many serious issues of environmental and social injustices that are impacting our land and food system, are intimately linked to the strength and resiliency of wild salmon. In this unique and timely exhibit we will explore the questions: what traditional significance did the iconic salmon have to our First Peoples, then and now? How can the humans who live in the salmon’s ancestral home today make the connections between their urban life and the current health of the ocean? And what important cultural connections can we gain from present-day artist/activist perspectives? They have heard the voice of the spirits of the salmon calling them. What will you hear if you watch and listen…?
