Celebrating the spirit of wild salmon. Calling all Artists!
Planning for the 4th Annual Wild Salmon Caravan is well underway. Help us nurture the creative life-giving energy that wild salmon have inspired through the ages. Calling all artists, organizations and diverse cultural groups to plan and host arts-build workshops. Create parade floats, regalia, costumes, banners and/or organize visual or performing arts events in the time leading up to our annual Caravan. We will be hosting Mardi Gras style parades and sacred ceremonies Sept. 22-29 in Vancouver, Chase and other communities along the route of the salmon to the Adams River.
Our theme this year is mermaids!
Create or facilitate art in your medium of choice, following themes that relate wild salmon to mermaids, matriarchs, water, healing, regeneration, transformation and change, sustainable energy and Indigenous food systems. We invite everyone to take part in our parades and programs in colourful, creative, cultural expressions of love for wild salmon.
Ancient ceremonies, songs, and stories of Coastal and Interior Salish communities will call the wild salmon home to the rivers, lakes, and streams of the Fraser Basin and Salish Sea corridor as we travel from the Salish Seas to the Adams River. The collaboration and creative energy will serve to educate, inform and transform the darkness surrounding the current industrial storm that is endangering wild salmon – our most important Indigenous food and cultural and ecological keystone species.
