A POETIC LANDSCAPE

Event at the 2019 BC Culture Days

In "A Poetic Landscape," Culture Days festival participants were invited to reflect on how the landscape surrounding Vancouver citizens could impact their thinking.


If our land were given the opportunity to teach us, what would it tell us? If we had the ability to converse with nature, how would we respond to its presence? ​


Through a reflective park installation, participants read landscape-inspired poetry, practiced the art of natural observation, and responded with written reflections, which connecting observations from members of the Vancouver community!

Publication (In Progress)

Alongside Vancouver photographer Danielle Campani, I am compiling true stories that highlight impactful citizens in the Vancouver area who are taking bold steps toward creating positive change in the realm of sustainability. The compilation of stories will result in a book which we plan to distribute across the city upon completion of the project, in hopes of mobilizing a greater network to take climate action.

If you or a member of your organization are interested in being interviewed and featured, get in touch!
