Exploring Water and Creating a School of Fish at Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House, 800 East Broadway, Vancouver
Did you know that under these paved roads there are streams flowing today? We are inviting the Mount Pleasant community, from first-time to experienced drawers, to reflect on our connection to water through drawing on wooden-shaped fish swimming up Mt Pleasant trees. With social artist in residence Melanie Schambach and members of the St. George Rainway project, exchange knowledge on WATER, explore lines as water landscape formations, and leave your mark by dropping in for a few minutes or staying for the whole day. Help to create a community mobile of fish and "draw" attention to our underground.
The St. George Rainway project is a community driven initiative that seeks to recall a historic waterway in Mount Pleasant, and the goal is to daylight this lost stream along St. George Street, from Kingsway to E. 5th Avenue. By participating in this event you will be contributing to environmental art that will be a reminder of our community's desire to bring this stream back to the surface.
