Rivers Have Mouths – Soft Opening, Jun 11
June 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Rivers Have Mouths, is the first of two art exhibitions from the public art program: Solidarity, which brings together local Indigenous and Chinese Canadian Artists.
It focuses on intergenarational dialogue and public education on wellbeing and recovery through art, history, knowledge and culture.
Presented by Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, Rivers Have Mouths was born out of a desire to call attention to our interconnected histories and lived experiences on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh-ulh Temíx̱w (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
Rivers Have Mouths public opening is free and will be taking place on June 11th and June 12th.
On Friday, June 11th with two different 45-minute time slots: the first starting at 5:00pm and the second at 6:00pm. The following day, Saturday June 12th, from 6pm to 7pm.
Limited to 25 people per time slot.
The Garden’s primary entrance has been relocated to Keefer and Carrall St, right across from S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K.Y. Lee Senior Care Home.
