Shifting Currents | Water Walk + Water Webs

April 23 2024 / 10:00am - 5:00pm


Aspire to Action – GP Vanier Secondary: social art practices and activism with Grade 11 + 12 students guided by educators Kristie Keyworth + David Merrick

A day dedicated to raising awareness about water issues + politics:

  • social art practice – walk for water
  • inspiration – Comox Valley Art Gallery to tour of exhibition + community activations
  • integrating – critical inquiry + dialogue onsite + art making

Evidence of the Aspire to Action students day of activation can be viewed in CVAG’s Hub Community Gallery until Saturday, May 25 at 5PM.

As part of CVAG’s RETURN TO WATER 2024 convergent program, Shifting Currents community collaborations feature art-based installations + events that shift the way in which we all consider water and how we engage with it. Thoughtful, playful, and experimental offerings instigate rethinking our current relationship with the Comox Valley Watershed.
