Inspired by the theme of ‘where land meets water’, The Foreshore Project brought together a team of emerging artists (youth) and professional artists to explore the inherent value of the foreshore for humans and for all beings. This was part of a three-part series of projects that focused on environmental educational through creative engagement that we titled Human Nature.
Artists facilitated workshops for children and youth in visual and media arts; partnered with the Student Environment Centre at UBC to produce a series of interactive community-engaged arts installations; and produced a series of installations along the Gibsons foreshore for the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl.
Partnered with: University of British ColumbiaTown Of Gibsons
The Town of Gibsons pioneered a program called Natural Asset Management, wherein they consider the towns natural infrastructure as a financial asset. As part of this project, Deer Crossing The Art Farm was hired to dialogue with and communicate to the public, the values that various natural assets provide our community. The Foreshore Project, The Woodlands Project, and The Aquifer Project were part of this work.
