A First Nation’s perspective of the estuary and our relation to it.
This film debuted in April 2016 at the Courtenay Museum as part of the Pieces of an Estuary presentation. Pieces of an Estuary was an environmental art and public education project of the Emily Carr University of Art + Design in consultation with the David Suzuki Foundation and in partnership with Project Watershed. The project was offered as a combined studio and humanities course at North Island College in the Spring of 2016, as part of the collaborative BFA program with Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
Many thanks to the Denise, Heather, Jenna and Tonja for their work in creating this film.
