2016: From Soil To Sky

Our main project in 2016 involved working with community members to answer the question: How we could make kites using only what we found in our backyards and city parks? Then taking what we learned to the larger community at various festivals. Here is the short video documentation of the work.

November 2016: Our Final Celebration, the very last Soil to Sky event! Also a proud part of Vancouver Moving Theatre’s amazing Heart of the City Festival

We are thrilled to announce that our Spring research labs for making kites using only local plants/resources has received funding from BC Arts Council (Arts-Based Community Development) to continue with the public this fall sharing what was learned- so watch for us at Fall Harvest celebrations and Culture Days events!
