Nature's Medicine: Mixed Media Creativity Workshop

Create your own nature inspired mixed media piece in this creativity workshop. Using stencils, collage papers, and printed imagery of ferns, ravens, eagles and beyond you will create a layered piece of art that incorporates tactile textures and language.

Instructor Melanie Rivers, Tiyaltelwet, will share teachings from her Squamish ancestry; learn how the Squamish Nation connects to the land, animals, and birds. Melanie will guide you through a meditation to connect with the imagery for your piece and lead you step by step in its creation. You will leave with your own uniquely expressed piece that you can hang on your own wall or offer as a gift. Relax and enjoy yourself in this welcoming workshop held in a safe learning environment.

Gone is Gone: Book Launch

Join us to celebrate the launch of the newly released children’s book, Gone is Gone: Wildlife Under Threat. If human behaviour is the cause of the wildlife crisis, it can also be the solution. What do endangered animals need, what do people do to help wildlife survive, and how can you act for the wild before it is too late? The richly illustrated book with foreword by Jane Goodall informs and inspires readers of all ages to take small steps toward big changes for endangered species. Meet author Isabelle Groc, hear stories from the field, learn about local conservation. Last chance to view MOV’s Wild Things exhibition! Drinks and appetizers served and books available for purchase.

Backyard Garden Cooking Workshop

Vancouver culinary and hospitality director, Robert Sung, invites you to learn new Asian recipes that make use of common vegetables you can draw from your own garden and fridge.

Museum of Vancouver and UBC’s Faculty of Land and Food Systems have planted a backyard garden at MOV in preparation for our Chinese immigration exhibition A Seat At The Table, opening in early 2020. As the 2019 summer garden season comes to a close Robert will be harvesting various MOV garden vegetables from our garden to prepare recipes featured at our cooking workshop. Learn how easy local vegetables are to prepare, cook and creatively use for meals.
