Culture Days is celebrated in Mission with an event on Sunday, Sept. 25.
Artist-in-residence Brenna Maag and musician Christopher John will celebrate the ravine at Lane Creek Park – at the back of the Mission Library parking lot at 33247 Second Ave. – from 1 to 3 p.m.
Maag and John are both settler artists using art and music as a way to deepen their connection to where they live, this beautiful place loved and cared for by the Sto:lo people since time immemorial.
Maag’s project Camera Illumina is an immersive experience made using the ancient technology of the camera obscura. Take a look through three different handmade cameras that focus your attention on the details and movement that often go unnoticed in our natural landscape.
Her project grew out of years of walking through the ravine and contemplating what it means to be in a reciprocal relationship with the land.
John will perform songs from his recently launched EP, The Resonant, which came out of his work during a place-based, ecological education master of education program.
