Jolene Andrew – Plant Walk
6 – 7 PM
Join Jolene Andrew for a plant walk to learn from an Indigenous worldview on plants as medicine and importance of the plant teachings. As an Indigenous woman I am leading change from the ground up.  Beginning with hands and feet firmly rooted in the earth, history, ancestral knowledge, and collectiveness. For 15 years I have been designing community programs and practices. I have engaged the world stage to embrace Indigenous approaches to community development for a more sustainable, equitable, and harmonious way to reach our community goals.

George Rahi- no tree is untouched by the wind
7:30 – 7:45 PM
no tree is untouched by the wind is a sound installation inspired by R. Murray Schafer’s idea of the soniferous garden, which he proposed as an outdoor space acoustically designed to inspire careful listening to one’s aural space. Integrating an artistic practice in kinetic sound sculpture, new media technology, and acoustic instrument making, the installation uses a series of suspended bell-like metallophone automatons nested throughout Hadden park’s tree canopy to invite heightened states of sensing and listening to the surrounding environment.
Accompanying the installation is a live performance of a piece by composer Robyn Jacob for the metallophones and three vocalists.
Support from the Glenfraser Endowment Research Award in Acoustic Communication.

We are moving in circles and breaking new ground – spiraling endlessly toward our greatest good – returning to ourselves to find deeper truths. Experience new perspectives and discover the infinite dimensions of self reflected in our environment and within those around us. Kindred spirits, one powerful unconditional love.
Thanks you to Heather and the Vines team

INSTALLATIONS

We all need to rest, to slow down, to enjoy our nights and days here on the blue green marble, to open ourselves up to these dazzling summer evenings and allow ourselves to fall in love with the whole world, every bit of it: the magic, the long light, the imperfections of ourselves and our friends and families. If you would like to, please write your wish on one of the strips of paper and it will be woven in to one of the two installations.
