Expert hands, steeped in tradition and honour of the past, which may also be what we need to save our future. Debra Sparrow hand-spins and dyes the wool for Musqueam blankets, which are made uniquely beautiful and were very nearly a lost art. #honourourancestors

This week marks the start of @indiansummerfestival! We are thrilled to be collaborating with them on a unique #publicart project, inspired by renowned contemporary photographer @dayanitasingh’s latest project #MuseumBhavan, a beautiful boxed set of intimate concertina books, intuitively grouped into lyrical chapters to tell a visual story. Singh encourages her readers/viewers to install and curate these mini exhibitions as they wish in their own homes or in public spaces.

In keeping with this spirit, we’ve given nine #Vancouver-based artists one of Singh’s mini-museums. Each of them will become curators of their own museum without walls at various locations across Metro Vancouver from July 5-15. Watch our Instagram Stories on Thursday, and then visit the locations to be eligible to win prizes along the way. Participating artists include @_____yaoyao_____, @elizabeth.zvonar, @maeganhillcarroll, @hyungmin_yoon, @ladragu, #MarleneYuen, @sandeepjohalart, #ClaireYow and @qwasen. Visit the @indiansummerfestival’s website for full details. Happy hunting! #VAGxISF #ISF2018

The Musqueam people have lived in their present location for thousands of years, and they have a deep connection to the Fraser River and its surrounding waters. To the Musqueam, the “Keepers of the River,” the Fraser river was a highway. Long before the first ships appeared on the horizon, the Musqueam used their River as a means of transportation. They paddled their canoes from village to village and across the waters to Vancouver Island. As the canoes glided over the top of the River, their paddles dug deep, and as they lifted them out of the water, they left behind ripples that turned into waves. The women then wove the beautiful patterns created by these ripples in the water on the blankets that clothed them. The image of “River Ripples” recreates these designs, connecting once more to the waters that are so much a part of Musqueam heritage.

Did you know there’s a Punjabi word for First Nations that only exists in BC? ‘Taike’. @indiansummerfest includes a “multi-year strategic programming stream called ‘Taike’, intended to bring together South Asian and Indigenous artists in meaningful collaborations and conversations.”

“Join us as a group of local Coast Salish leaders and grateful guests share songs that ask us to think deeply about where we stand while showing our gratitude for the unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories.
.
This special event is a musical tribute to these beautiful, unceded Coast Salish lands. For those of us who are guests and visitors in this place, how do we show our gratitude to its people and ancestors? How can we reflect on what this land gives and what we can give back?”
