That Which Sustains Us
Museum of Vancouver, Vancouver, BC
Different knowledge traditions converge in this long-running exhibition, focused on the ways different peoples understand and interact with the natural environment – particularly the West Coast rain forest. Created in consultation with representatives from the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations along with environmental historians and forestry researchers, the displays prompt us to think about urbanization, deforestation, stewardship, sustainability and the ways culture shapes our understanding of nature.
