6 – 6:30 PM
An̓usáyum̓, (Two Berries in the Squamish Language) is made up of two young Indigenous artists from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation. Currently they are both studying their language, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Sníchim, full time at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver BC. On top of learning their language, they write and sing contemporary western music as well as Coast Salish traditional singing. With a passionate about their roots and dedicated to always learning more about their culture, their sound mixes the traditional and contemporary.

Katie Cassady
6:30 – 6:45 PM
This work is composed of two solos, two chapters or meditations on interconnectedness. One chapter makes use of an anecdote told by Professor Robert Hass at the 2008 conference “Creativity in the Face of Climate Change”, about cranes breeding in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. The other chapter focuses on the cultural conception of nature, and how we are not “other” or separate from nature, but intimately bound up with it. Through movement and performance, these two chapters together attempt to illustrate and think through specific perspectives on interconnectedness.
Special thanks to Eden Solomon, Marissa Wong, Robert Hass, and Set Fire to Flames.

Eddy Van Wyck– Tribute Concert
6:45 – 7:45 PM
A special tribute concert. Proceeds go towards mental health research and facilities. A concert of voices. The practise of true natures. What is in the voice? What is in the earth? A vibration. Providing each person with the means and opportunity to use original material that empowers and emboldens their voice. What is the ritual of the voice and how is it similar to the earth? In this practise of the voice through public performance, we create a platform for listening and play. If we listen to our true natures will it bring us closer?

What are we trying to achieve in our fast-pace rhythm of consumerism?
Do we seek connection through collecting more and more things?
We are constantly encouraged to shop more; how does our belongings define us?
Making the familiar to an unfamiliar item, as well as showing what we often tend to hide, I try to highlight these questions…
This piece invites everyone to remember nature and get back to the source of it all…
Thank you: Alaleh Zahabioun and Mina Samzadeh

Yolanda Weeks –Nomadic Nest (resilience)
My nest is an offering – a resting space for ALL to regroup, reflect, rest and re-imagine. Nomadic Nest (resilience) stems from a desire to house, nurture and protect the resilient many who fight for our collective home in subtle and substantial ways. Using natural materials (branches, fibres, grasses, etc.) found and gathered respectfully on Coast Salish Territory, ALL are invited to envelop themselves in the beautiful fabric of the land.
