WOW (Weaving Our Way)
Weaving Our Way includes the display of small individual weavings, their accompanying stories, and a collective collaborative blanket. The exhibition will explore the theme of Musqueam weaving, artistry, story-telling, and community organizing, showcasing a multiplicity of heritage in the form ofcontemporary woven public art.
Join us at Richmond Art Gallery on Saturday, September 22, 2-5pm, to hear about the exhibition on the theme of "interculturalism” for the Weaving Our Way (WOW) project, and what the indigenous artist-mentor and non-indigenous project leader experiences were like for artist Debra Sparrow and Keiko Honda, Ph.D., Executive Director of Vancouver Arts Colloquium Society. They will discuss their grassroots processes and the work they produced as part of a year-long public art project, to provide some insights to support artistic creations through weaving and cross-cultural empathy. The artist will also demonstrate Musqueam weaving and invite anyone to try their hand at weaving.
