One of the keys to our health and well-being is our connection to nature. As our city grows denser and more developed, it becomes increasingly important to create infrastructure that balances nature with the urban landscape. In recognition of this, Vancouver has launched several creek daylighting projects to uncover the natural network of creeks that are buried under our city.
In this immersive workshop learn about creek daylighting—the process of uncovering buried creeks, and its role in creating more ecologically balanced cities. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the global creek daylighting movement, its emergence in Vancouver, and its ecological, economic and social benefits.
The workshop includes a discovery tour around the neighbourhood as well as a collaborative art project. We will also collectively explore ways to build public support and awareness for this movement. COST: $30
