This micro-exhibition in the MOV studio called c̓əc̓əwitəl̕ | helping each other | ch’áwatway, provides an opportunity for the 2019 YVR Art Foundation (YVRAF) scholarship recipients to exhibit their artworks. Each year, since 2005, recipients have exhibited their artworks at a celebratory event held at the Vancouver International Airport. This year’s event was cancelled to due to COVID-19.
The micro-exhibition, which will be on display until December 9, 2020, explores themes of resilience, memory and identity, through reconnection with ancestral knowledge and lands. The title, written in both hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh snichim, shows our respect for the teachings of our host communities – the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil Waututh Nations while acknowledging that this exhibition is taking place within their shared traditional territories. The title also recognizes the importance of mentorship and the value of sharing gained knowledge and skills with others in the community.
