Lifeways: Reimagining Community, Spirit and Place

December 9, 2020 – January 24, 2021 
Bill Reid Gallery Hummingbird Gathering Space
The Bill Reid Gallery is pleased to partner on Lifeways, a film exhibition featuring the work of UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Master students. 
Bringing together local Haida, academics, storytellers and an international group of design students, these films are part of a process for reconciliation.
The stories reflect on self, community and spirit - an epic of humanity and nature coming together under the pressures of social, environmental, economic and political unrest. It is a set of animated stories inspired by the supernatural beings found in Haida mythology.
This exhibition explores the formation of identity by reimagining the community, spirit and place we know as Haida Gwaii.
