Place des Arts’ Community Engaged Art Project in the Leonore Peyton Salon

Please note: the Leonore Peyton Salon is a multi-purpose space; therefore, viewing times are limited. Please call 604.664.1636 for viewing availability prior to your visit.

Throughout the summer of 2022, Place des Arts alongside First Nations artist Christine Mackenzie attended several community events with our community art project Sharing Culture through the Natural World. At each event, our community helped create a different component of the art project, which celebrates multiculturalism through First Nations art and culture.

We can all identify with the natural world regardless of our culture or background. This exhibition showcases the unique characteristics of traditional northwest coast animals and you may discover which animal you relate to. Through this project, we hope to inspire self-exploration, dialogue, learning and sharing.

If you participated in the project at one of the events, see how the component you contributed to fits within the context of the larger project. If this is your first time seeing the project, come visit to reflect on how our community can grow and learn from each other.

Your voice matters. We are all important to the conversation in our diverse community.

Opening Reception

September 9 • 7 pm to 9 pm • 1120 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
