How can the art of Salish weaving build a sense of place, identity, and healing? 

Please join us for a panel discussion—in-person or online - featuring the artists in the Weaving the Future exhibition: Debra Sparrow (Musqueam), Angela George (Tsleil-Waututh) and Chief Janice George (Squamish), partnered with their students, three emerging weavers: Aleen Sparrow (Musqueam), Deana George (Tsleil-Waututh), and Anita Tetreau (Squamish). 

Weaving the Future explores the changing dynamics of Salish weaving—how materials and techniques stay the same, but the end results are adapting to contemporary lifestyles. The exhibition emphasizes the important role of mentorship and passing on traditional knowledge.
