Sour vs Sour – Chocolate Bar Edition

Posted by on Jul 23, 2018 in Publications, Texts, Uncategorized | No Comments

Big Rock Candy Mountain – Sour vs Sour – As part of a 3-month engagement with a Queen Alexandra Elementary School grade 3/4 class, artists Hannah Jickling & Helen Reed taste-tested a range of flavours and developed a miscellaneous vocabulary to describe them: sounds, shapes, words, elaborate fonts, synesthetic line drawings and emojis. With visits to-and-from East Van Roasters, the group learned about single-origin, fairly traded dark chocolate and navigated its tense (and tacky) conflation with cheap candy from the gas station nearby.

BLUE CABIN SPEAKER SERIES: DANIEL FRANCIS

Squatters have been a fixture in Burrard Inlet since before Vancouver was created. Their story encompasses the history of Gastown and Kitsilano, the dispossession of Indigenous people, the evolution of Stanley Park, the hobo jungles of the Great Depression, and the search for affordable housing in an always-expensive metropolis. Author Daniel Francis describes this history, illustrating his talk with photographs both archival and contemporary.

THE FORESHORE: PART II, SESSION II

This is a conversation between Coll Thrush, Kamala Todd & attendees. Creating home and a sense of place means building relationships. How well do we relate/give back/listen to the land and waters that are our home? This is a conversation towards decolonizing the city, asking questions about learning the laws and expectations and responsibilities before we assume permission and right mindedness to “come ashore” and be good visitors. This conversation will be held at the Mount Pleasant Community Centre, in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery.
