Climate Canvas: A Community Art Project

Join us for an empowering opportunity to create a community mosaic for climate. This in-person event is offered by the Resilience by Design Lab with support of Royal Roads, University of Victoria and the Township of Esquimalt.

This is a one-day participatory art project designed to engage diverse citizens from the Capital Regional District (CRD), including staff, faculty and staff from Royal Roads University and University of Victoria. Facilitated by Dr. Bruno de Oliveira Jayme, this event will bring together community members (e.g., educators, high-school students, local artists, and interested participants) to join in an arts-based experience and conversation focused on the intersection of public art, reconciliation, decolonization, and climate justice. The workshop will provide participants with a fun, creative, and empowering arts-based opportunity to explore and portray their hopes and fears related to climate change, explore, and motivate ideas for climate action and climate justice, and co-construct a vision for a climate resilient future for themselves and their community. 

Three 90-minute sessions will be offered throughout the day and registration for each will be capped at around 80 participants.

Three free sessions with open but limited registration are available. Find out more and register for your session of choice.
