Celebrate the Spirit of Wild salmon through the arts and culture to help nurture the creative life-giving energy that wild salmon have inspired through the ages.
The collaboration and creative energy will serve to educate, inform and transform the darkness surrounding the industrial storm that is endangering wild salmon.
Ancient ceremonies and songs of Indigenous people, as well as creative expressions of visual and performing arts, music, storytelling and guest speakers will call the salmon home to the rivers and streams where they play out their lives.
We need your help to create and share media that will tell people what wild salmon mean to you and why it is important to protect them and their habitat.
