Theatre, Multicultural — Collective Creation, Hands-On Activity
A site specific, outdoor event held over two months in

large scale art installation consisting of an animated
three-metre-high Coast Salish puppet representing
indigenous identity and integration; second, a community
engaged, participatory component where members of
the public will be invited to interact with the installation
to create a procession; and third, a free multidisciplinary
presentation will be presented.
