A Glimpse into Our Past
Since its inception in 2004, Still Moon Arts has done much work over the years to facilitate the connection between nature and the arts. From Still Creek Stories to Birds on Parade, our projects have accomplished thanks to the hard work of staff, artists, storytellers, knowledge-keepers, community members, and volunteers. You can learn about some of these projects below.
Birds on Parade and in Residence (2018)
In 2018, we celebrated our winged relatives as part of the Vancouver International Bird Festival and the International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver.
5050 Joyce St. Pop-up Studio (2017)
A temporary 10-week space created for local artists and community organizations, the pop-up studio was an engaging display of the thriving arts community in Renfrew-Collingwood.
Still Creek Stories (2017)
In 2017, we published a book highlighting the stories and knowledge told by community members about Still Creek, Renfrew Ravine, and the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood.
Wild Salmon Caravan (2016 & 2017)
We participated in a journey across Indigenous communities to learn from elders and knowledge-keepers about the importance of wild salmon to our land and food systems.
Lost Stream Street Murals (2014 - 2017)
Still Moon Arts and residents of Renfrew-Collingwood created a number of beautiful street murals throughout the neighbourhood to uncover the lost streams of Still Creek.
Reflecting Still Creek (2012 - 2013)
Bringing together community members with varying experiences and knowledge in stewardship and the arts, this project provided a model for community-led restoration of Still Creek.
Spirit Fish Festival (2009 - 2011)
We organized a parade and festival to celebrate bodies of water and the creatures that inhabit them, inviting participants to dress up as fish and reflect on the importance of our aquatic ecosystems.
Over the years, artists at Still Moon Arts have facilitated many art projects using materials from nature. Check out some of the art we have created.
