WELCOME TO VINES ART FESTIVAL

There is much to celebrate this year as we share the program of Vines fourth festival. We have grown our team to include some really beautiful people, including Senaqwila Wyss, Kathleen Gordon, Eddy van Wyck, Aleks Besan and Sara Cadeau. We have formed new partnerships and we continue to deepen our understanding of what it means to share art on the land of the Coast Salish peoples. This year’s festival focuses on the interrelationship of social justice to environment justice and of the body to the land. Vines is grounded in what is present here, in our web of communities. Continual support of megaprojects and violation of indigenous rights, human rights and land rights; the ever-pressing rumbling injustice that pushes, exhausts, heightens anxiety and depression. Concurrently there are multiple fires burning life and energy, prayers being shared between unlikely groups, disruptions of systems happening daily, beautiful flowers with bees collecting nectar and the scent of cedar forests. The artists in Vines this year are continually burning fires within themselves, moving water with their songs, words and dance and unapologetically sharing their beliefs and values. Goosebumps and tears are a regular occurrence as I follow artists such as anusåyum, Jaz Whitford, (Kimmortal, Missy D), Jessica McMann, Crystal Smith, Quin Lawrence, Marisa Gold and Janelle Reid and many more share their art. I am reassured each time that art and artists lead change and that witnessing and sharing brings us back to our humanity and reminds us to love. I am looking forward to our unsettling ceremony led by Sara Cadeau on the final day of our festival (August 19th) and hope to see you there in addition to the many other events during the festival. Hugs, Heather Lamoureux Artistic Director, Vines Art Festival

Rafal Czahor The Bench Project (1-4pm)

SUREANDO (1-1:45pm)

The bench project is an interactive and mobile experience. It seeks to make the familiar unfamiliar; to provide a safe space to feel and explore what it means to live on stolen land. One participant at a time will join me and my backpack bench as we walk around Granville Island. There is no route. No destination. This project is about listening to ourselves, our bodies, and learning from each other. By engaging with all our senses, silent walking, and ‘pop-up’ conversations on the bench, we will enter into our bodies and notice where, and how, we are. A latin band whose repertoire is made of Vernacula music (music that talks about costumes and traditions from the hispanic nations.)

All Bodies Dance Sanctuary (2-2:15pm)

Rabbit Richards (2:30 - 2:50pm)

Quin Lawrence (3-3:30pm)

All Bodies Dance explores how to hold and transform space in the body and how that transformation changes the distance between moving bodies and the moving body of city spaces. Harmanie and Rianne examine sanctuary in relationship to self, to one another, and to the people that inhabit public spaces. Choreographed and performed by Harmanie Taylor and Rianne Svelnis www.allbodiesdance.ca An emotional and conscious, curated set of spoken-word poetry to challenge comfortable folks, comfort folks facing challenges, and encourage us all to consider our place in the world and what we can do about it. The works displayed here give evidence of humour and soft love, while showcasing the values of curiosity, nuance, and empathy. follow me on Twitter: www.twitter.com/rabbitrichards support me on Patreon: www.patreon.com/rabbitrichards Poetry with Q is intimate, challenging and vulnerable. Expect to examine deeply-held assumptions about crip status, the ways in which aesthetics of beauty versus ugly fail us, and the liberation of those who sit down for our rights. Come bitter or curious, with love or judgment, come as you are, come open-hearted or tight-fisted. This is a space to be pushed and held. https://quineli.wixsite.com/qjusttheletter I'd like to acknowledge the global disability community, and in particular Tai Trewhella as the creator of Cripple Punk, and the crip, disabled, & ill elders who've taken time to educate me on our history and ongoing resistance. 4

Venus and Moon is a play about two planets that explores our relationship to femininity throughout history and what it looks like today. The play centres on queer characters and queer experience through absurdism and intimacy.

ART INSTALLATION & WORKSHOP (WATER IS LIFE)

(1-4pm)

We will be growing our art installations with you! Come join us and create your own sea creature to take home with you! Led by Marcey Amaya Marta Robertson Smyth Transforming Granville Island into a vivid depiction of Ocean Life with images supplied by Marta Robertson-Smyth. These images will be attached to the pipes on the periphery of the workshop area and will serve as an attraction to draw participants and to serve as inspiration and reference for people participating in the workshop. Dalia Levy Connective (T)issue

Christian Vistan Papag

Inspired by women’s Arpilleras of Pinochet’s Chile, this knit/embroidery piece protests the Pacific garbage patch and extractive economies like bitumen on our coast. As the same criminal mentality of supremacy exhibited under a dictatorship disappears our earth and our humanity, the piece simultaneously highlights the powerful sources of life embedded into all of us. Representative of the underground connective channels that create the webs of mycellium our entire planetary eco-system grows from, the netting gives further conceptual insights of life woven into all DNA. With women's traditional textile knowledge as a means to subvert and survive, the piece protests the plunder blanketing earth and the interwoven convergence of issues in an era of global crises. A papag is a wooden bed, made with bamboo and other local materials, used to sit, sleep, eat, and gossip on in the Philippines. The papag’s quotidian use and construction is characteristic of life in rural towns. In Vines, Christian Vistan’s Papag is an infrastructure for sitting and togetherness. Harnessing its potential for conviviality and conversation, Papag hopes to function as a platform for local words, thoughts, and interactions to be generated, collected, and stored – Papag as a propositional publication.

Tess Conrad (6:30-7:30pm & 8:15-9pm) George Rahi No Tree Is Untouched By The Wind (7:30-7:45pm)

Marisa Gold & Janelle Reid (8-8:15pm)

I invite you to awaken your senses and step into our little world. If you feel injustice, can you let it continue? I'd like to acknowledge Davey Calderon for guidance and support. Collaborator: Andrew Ferguson 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. https://www.facebook.com/GeorgeRahiMusic/ 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 Instagram: @marathegold @janellereid46

INSTALLATIONS Pia Massie Bower and Fountain (For The Bees) Tea and Snacks with Pia Massie (8:30 to 9:15pm)

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.

A compelling, righteous narrative emerges when we weave together the work of Vines’ artists. In this action-adventure story, ecological imperatives catalyze, challenging circumstances are met, the doldrums are traversed, a few monsters learn their lessons, and in the end, environmental justice prevails. Your imagination and creativity are invited: mirrors and markers will be available for you to reflect on and then contribute to an ’all nations call to action’. Come listen, be entertained, ... then add a thread of possibility to our story! www.goosefeather.ca https://www.facebook.com/sheisNEPS/ https://twitter.com/goosefeatherca

Kimmortal, Missy D & Immigrant Lessons (7:45-8:30pm)

Anusáyum, (Two Berries in the Squamish Language) is made up of two young Indigenous artists from the Skwxwú7mesh Nation. Currently they are both studying their language, Skwxwú7mesh Sníchim, full time at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver BC. On top of learning their language, they write and sing contemporary western music as well as Coast Salish traditional singing. With a passionate about their roots and dedicated to always learning more about their culture, their sound mixes the traditional and contemporary. This work is composed of two solos, two chapters or meditations on interconnectedness. One chapter makes use of an anecdote told by Professor Robert Hass at the 2008 conference "Creativity in the Face of Climate Change", about cranes breeding in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. The other chapter focuses on the cultural conception of nature, and how we are not "other" or separate from nature, but intimately bound up with it. Through movement and performance, these two chapters together attempt to illustrate and think through specific perspectives on interconnectedness. Special thanks to Eden Solomon, Marissa Wong, Robert Hass, and Set Fire to Flames. A special tribute concert. Proceeds go towards mental health research and facilities. A concert of voices. The practise of true natures. What is in the voice? What is in the earth? A vibration. Providing each person with the means and opportunity to use original material that empowers and emboldens their voice. What is the ritual of the voice and how is it similar to the earth? In this practise of the voice through public performance, we create a platform for listening and play. If we listen to our true natures will it bring us closer? Kimmortal and Missy D are independent artist hustler womxn of color in hip hop, joining forces with dance group Immigrant Lessons. Immigrant Lessons is a dance/art/fashion collective created to promote cultural pluralism through: dance, music, fashion, visual media, and visual design.

INSTALLATIONS Shamin Zahabioun

What are we trying to achieve in our fast-pace rhythm of consumerism? Do we seek connection through collecting more and more things? We are constantly encouraged to shop more; how does our belongings define us? Making the familiar to an unfamiliar item, as well as showing what we often tend to hide, I try to highlight these questions‌ This piece invites everyone to remember nature and get back to the source of it all...

INSTALLATIONS Charlotte Priest 58 Oceans Project

Christian Vistan Papag

Inspired by the #GoWildForSalmon and the #KMchallenge and the desire to connect more deeply with the ocean, artists Anna Kraulis and Charlotte Priest investigate how an individual challenge can connect us to larger environmental issues. Committing to going in the ocean for 30 consecutive days, they document a personal inquiry into their unique relationships to the life-giving Pacific Ocean that surrounds them, while drawing awareness to issues on the coast. The practice will be documented in photographs and words. A photo will be taken each day from the Strawberry Moon (June) to the Buck Moon (July), for a total of 58 photographs with poetic ruminations, turned into an engaging display. We were inspired by: https://www.facebook.com/fishfarmsgetout/ A papag is a wooden bed, made with bamboo and other local materials, used to sit, sleep, eat, and gossip on in the Philippines. The papag’s quotidian use and construction is characteristic of life in rural towns. In Vines, Christian Vistan’s Papag is an infrastructure for sitting and togetherness. Harnessing its potential for conviviality and conversation, Papag hopes to function as a platform for local words, thoughts, and interactions to be generated, collected, and stored – Papag as a propositional publication.


RESILIENT ROOTS Resilient Roots is the heart of Vines Art Festival, bringing together some of the emerging Indigenous artists who are also bearing their souls on the frontline grassroots movements, speaking out against the Pipelines and resource extraction, and combining art with activism - Artivism. This year’s group is diverse and well spoken, with the emerging artists growing in their practice with the opportunity to work with an Indigenous mid-career artists to mentor them in creating a new, never before seen piece to be performed in the Finale of this summer’s festival!

YOUTH PROGRAM In its inaugural formation, Vine’s youth program has brought together a cohort of young creatives, asking them to consider their position on this land and in its future as the uniting purpose for their time together. Over the course of eight weeks, they’ve explored art as a powerful tool for at-times necessary interruption, placing themselves in the story of this critical place at this critical moment for the environment of the Coast Salish territories and across Turtle Island. By situating their inquiry in respect to Indigenous protocol and knowledge keeping, and then coupling this with practicing embodiment, presence, and art’s relationship to the political, these youth will produce their own offerings in Vines Festival’s main event on August 18th.

PERFORMANCES

Welcome at Blue Cedar Yoro Noukoussi (1:10-1:30pm) Blue Cedar

Polymer Dance (1:30-1:50pm) Red Cedar

Crystal Smith (1:50-2:10pm) Birch

Kathara (2:10-2:30pm) Blue cedar

1-1:10pm Born in North Benin, Africa and chief’s son of the Waama people, this multi-instrumentalist singer- songwriter learned the art of storytelling and drumming from his family as they traveled the region sharing their cultural traditions. Now in Canada, Yoro is in great demand as a performer, having mastered the donga (talking drum), kokomba (congas), and djembe. On stage, both solo and with his band, he is a dynamic and mesmerizing performer, drawing you in to the sights, sounds, and rhythms of West Africa. What influences the individual? What mobilizes a whole community? What does it take to generate change? Using ensemble improvisation as a medium, “tipping point” is an exploration of how change happens in a system. Inspired by the urgency to create positive change in socio-economic and environmental contexts, this piece reflects on individual, group and community actions and reactions that push status quo to the edges of change, as well as, those who experience resistance. Moving through responses that are both temporary and permanent, subtle and obvious, change is a profound process that is inevitable. Sonja Janousek (lead), Jocelyn Cameron (musician) Polymer Dancers (co-creators) PolymerDance.com Resilient Roots artist who has been mentored by Ronnie Dean Harris for creating a new piece for this year’s Vines Festival. Crystal Smith is Tsimshian, Haisla and has been adopted into the Heiltsuk nation. She is a single mother of two beautiful children and is raising them to be proud Tsimshian and Haisla beings. She writes to bring awareness to the devastation colonialism is having on Indigenous peoples but more importantly the resilience and power of Indigenous peoples to engage and uplift each other. She recently achieved her Masters in Educational Administration and Leadership with a focus on Indigenous leadership at UBC. Pronounced Kat-hara, Kathara’s beginnings are in the Philippines, a vision to coexist in peace and harmony with one another and the abundant environment; to celebrate the beautiful diversity of tribal peoples in Mindanao. “Lupa Ay Buhay” Land is Life!! Kathara continues the legacy here in Canada between Filipinos and the Aboriginal peoples of Canada.

Serisa Fits James, Mutia Three Artists from Vines inaugural youth program create a multidisiplinary Juristika, and Emily Glass interactive project not to be missed. (2:30-2:50pm) Birch

(3:30-3:40pm) Blue Cedar Uschi Tala (3:40-4pm) Blue cedar

Valeen Jules (4-4:20pm) Birch

Onibana Taiko (4:20-4:40pm) Blue Cedar

A self taught multi instrumentalist and poet, Uschi Tala draws inspiration from the elements the underworld and the light found within darkness. Wielding a loop pedal, beat machine and various instruments, she creates ambient soundscapes that dance along hauntingly serene vocals and rhythmic rhymes. Uschi's music has been described as tragically beautiful, otherworldly and pure magic. Her lyrics embody an ocean of healing and encourage others to sea the radiance in themselves as well as the bigger picture. She will ground your spirit, and raise your heart into ethereal worlds of the in between. I would like to dedicate my piece to the fire and water as well www.uschitala.com Resilient Roots artist who has been mentored by Rosemary Georgeson for creating a new piece for this year’s Vines Festival. Valeen Jules, also known as Kā’ ānni, is a determined young Indigenous warrior from the Nuu-chah-nulth and Kwakwaka’wakw Nations.

She released her first chapbook iimisic in July 2016 which has been used in the curriculum of a Humanities course at Emily Carr University. Formed in 2016, Onibana Taiko are three veterans of Vancouver’s Taiko community whose performance presentations draw from Japanese traditional music and festival rituals - all with a touch of punk aesthetics. Onibana is a type of flower that grows in the grave sites in Japan. Through taiko, the group seeks to transform shadow elements into beauty. Their performances allows audience members to commune with ancestors via obon dance, song, sensu (fan) cheerleading, fue (flute), shamisen and kick-ass taiko. The group is comprised of Eileen Kage, Noriko Kobayashi and Leslie Komori whose depth of performance and taiko experiences combine to over 100 years.

Lesley Dawn Kosinski (4:40-5pm) Birch

Our gross overuse of plastic has devastated countless ecosystems. Every single choice we make, each cup of coffee, plastic bag or takeout container used contributes to this global epidemic. For this piece I collected my own plastic waste, contemplating the environmental impact of my actions and choices. Tuning in to my inner landscape to sense fear, guilt, shame, and grief; allowing these emotions to move me; physically embodying the struggle of Nature versus Plastic. Is there hope? Can we Rise above Plastics? It is up to us to make a change and protect our sacredhome, Planet Earth. Deep gratitude to all my teachers past, present, and future. Special thanks to George Hong, Vancouverite at heart, for his unwaivering support and guidance on this journey known as life. @soulshinehealingmovement

ROAMING AND INTERACTIVE Polymer Dance

New (to) Town Collective Parade (12:30-1:30pm)

N(t)TC is an emerging theatre collective that is aspiring to provide accessible, experimental training workshops and creating new interdisciplinary works together. We are interested in collaborating and cross pollinating our practices and ideas with collaborators from across all artistic disciplines through our Training Jams. As a Collective, we bring together a unique blend of practices including: Grotowski, devising, clowning, visual arts, contemporary dance, playwriting, dramaturgy, directing and more!

Inspired equally by the history of Dutch duck hunting and Millennial Pink, Koiker rafts together three stories and a set of evocative objects in an intimate site-specific performance. A continuation of Decoy (2018), which (2:30pm, 3:40pm & 4:40pm) introduced Lorne, his son Jason, and 70 antique duck decoys, Koiker delves further into themes of morality, intimacy and longing for the natural world. Created and performed by Barbara Adler. 15 minutes. Not suggested for very young children. Follow the pink ducks to find the show... Thank you to Kyla Gardiner, James Meger and to Ten Thousand Wolves. Barbara Adler Koiker

Lily Cryan Sirens (3-3:30pm & 5-5:30pm) Monica Trejbal (3-5pm)

"Sirens" is a wandering flock of bird people, get too close and they just might bite. Get entranced by their gaze and you may find yourself surprised. Follow them for an intimate and unique look at the places we live. @lilcryan Monica’s roving clown is interactive and improv based, emphasizing connection both with groups and individual members of the crowd. Both on stage or in an open public space, her clown pokes fun at taboo topics of social convention. Her body is flexible and versatile and her movements enhance her ability to take on an extraordinarily playful form. The infectiousness of her warm and whimsical nature open the spectator up to delight, abandoning the confines of rigid social roles, closing the gaps in humanity...bringing lightness.


WORKSHOPS Anne Montgomery

Anne Montgomery & Dawn Livera (1-4pm)

Swallow Cacn (2-5pm)

Claudia Segovia (4-6pm)

Textile artists Anne Montgomery and Dawn Livera invite you to come and share in the creation of a Cast Off Crazy Quilt. In the same manner of traditional sewing bees, we encourage people to collect cast off items in the park and then hand stitch them onto a repurposed piece of fabric. So called trash once had a purpose, although often a short-lived one. By creating an art quilt from what is essentially garbage, we hope to encourage waste reduction and recycling, and inspire people to see the beauty in what otherwise would be considered cast off items. FB page: https://www.facebook.com/AbieDesigns/ Swallow has been an editor, writer and teacher for decades. Art is her favorite hobby. She enjoys all kinds of arts and crafts, practicing oil painting, making dream catchers, twisting balloon and doing face painting for kids and all kinds of festivals. What's more she is good at Chinese teaching that she has been teaching a number of non-Chinese origin kids Chinese poems and singing. Her honest attitude with good personality and patience are highly welcome by kids. For the VINES festival she will do both face painting and balloon for you. She would be very happy to tutor on how to make them on the spot. Welcome ( ) to her table. Imagination Station! Young and young at heart come to play with creativity!! Build a sculpture made of recycled/found materials and take it home.

INSTALLATIONS (ALL DAY)

Art is Land Network

Ben Wylie Wind Chimes

Matthew Tomkinson Big Clear Plastic Ear

Charlotte Priest 58 Oceans Project

Art is Land Network Relic

Christian Vistan Papag

A collection of hanging wind chimes made with materials gathered from the dumpsters, beaches, alleys, and parks around the city. Natural and manufactured detritus is suspended in the air and allowed to sound together, reflecting the disharmony between our human endeavors and the natural world. Viewers will be invited to interact with the installation and hear the different sounds produced by the collected materials. www.benwyliemusic.com Big Clear Plastic Ear (BCPE) is an interactive sound sculpture made of %100 post-consumer waste. Alongside the official City of Vancouver collection bins, the BCPE functions as a recycling container. At the bottom of the ear is a small speaker, which emits pre-recorded sound. As the container fills up throughout the day with litter, this sound becomes altered by public “contributions.” In another sense, however, it’s the space of the ear itself that is being altered – hence its “plasticity.” The BCPE is an overt statement on noise pollution, hearing loss, and our listening relationship to the environment. The piece was made in collaboration with Elissa Hanson. Inspired by the #GoWildForSalmon and the #KMchallenge and the desire to connect more deeply with the ocean, artists Anna Kraulis and Charlotte Priest investigate how an individual challenge can connect us to larger environmental issues. Committing to going in the ocean for 30 consecutive days, they document a personal inquiry into their unique relationships to the life-giving Pacific Ocean that surrounds them, while drawing awareness to issues on the coast. The practice will be documented in photographs and words. A photo will be taken each day from the Strawberry Moon (June) to the Buck Moon (July), for a total of 58 photographs with poetic ruminations, turned into an engaging display. we were inspired by: https://www.facebook.com/fishfarmsgetout/ Embark on a voyage of discovery . Moored beside Trout Lake a woven skeletal vessel form of local willow branches awaits intervention. Nicole Dextras, Fae Logie and Robin Ripley, three members of AILN (Art is land Network) continue the network's tradition of working with natural and repurposed materials to engage with the landscape. AILN will collaborate with the festivals participants to activate the landlocked "Relic" https://artislandnetwork.com A papag is a wooden bed, made with bamboo and other local materials, used to sit, sleep, eat, and gossip on in the Philippines. The papag’s quotidian use and construction is characteristic of life in rural towns. In Vines, Christian Vistan’s Papag is an infrastructure for sitting and togetherness. Harnessing its potential for conviviality and conversation, Papag hopes to function as a platform for local words, thoughts, and interactions to be generated, collected, and stored – Papag as a propositional publication.


SUNDAY AUGUST 19TH Trout Lake Park (2120 E 19th Ave) (1-3PM)

Unsettling Ceremony with Sara Cadeau What comes after land acknowledgments, and what should have come before? We invite you to help sing the first note to a medicine song of healing. The UNSETTLING Ceremony. For uninvited guests living on Coast Salish territory. Please make yourself uncomfortable! Not from here? Through service and actions, you can begin to undo the claiming of that which was never yours. As land stewards and guests, we can begin by understanding that the teachings and songs that weave through these mountains and waterways, from time immemorial, are not ours. Can our own teachings, our own ancient animistic and infinitely connected selves, be pulled back in through our feet, our dreaming and our actions? Can we use our bodies as a shield to stand between corporate shadow governance and land protectors? Unsettle yourself and find out. Let’s deconstruct the concepts of ownership and privilege. This circle will be a personal and collective eradication of manifest destiny. Backwards coyote medicines are afoot here. World famous rents aren’t enough. Give of yourself. Be of service. Times aren’t urgent. You aren’t needed. Just joking. You are. This is reconciliation in action. Come correct – to be corrected. This ceremony will be witnessed by matriarchs and knowledge keepers of these territories. You are welcome. Thanks for thinking this song was about you. It is. It’s for you. 28
