Thank You Angela George
Time has gone by fast for Angela George who was incredibly busy in December and January wrapping up her residency at the Blue Cabin. While working on her master artwork Weaving Governance during her residency at the Blue Cabin, George participated in five official Blue Cabin events which included studio visits, artist talks and weaving tutorials. An incredibly active member in the community, George also hosted numerous other groups at the cabin sharing her project, artistic practice and knowledge.
From high school and university students to teachers and indigenous youth groups, from elders from the Squamish and Tsleil Waututh nations to an Indigenous mom and tots group. George visited with so many diverse communities. These also included the local Vancouver Arts and Crafts Communities, Vancouver Art Gallery docents, the Contemporary Art Society of Vancouver and board members from grunt gallery. Thank you Angela for your generosity!
Once the work and the residency was completed, Weaving Governance was displayed at the SFU Beedie School of Business building for George’s colleagues and teachers in the program to review.
The work was then moved to the Tsleil-Waututh Administration Building on Tsleil-Waututh Territory in North Vancouver where Weaving Governance has been permanently installed as both a legacy weaving work and active document that shares the nation’s governance model with all who visit the offices. George generously invited the Blue Cabin team to attend the artwork’s reveal, a special ceremony with 200 attendees that was dedicated to all of the work that George had undertaken with this project. Thank you for sharing this special moment Angela.
