Date and time

This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.


Victoria Road North

Guelph, ON

Nature and a sense of place are catalysts for Tait Wilman's work, her artistic practice explores discursive trajectories between sense of self and place, through installation, sculpture, and performance. 'Leave No Trace' is a sculpture located at Royal Recreation trail near Guelph Lake. This sculpture will illustrate some of the local ecology you can find on this trail, here you will also find a small take away. This zine or take away will not only guide you through on your trail excursion but will provide tidbits about the local ecosystem, and a creative activity. This activation brings a new perspective to the local nature, diversity and creativity in the area. The artist aims to encourage exploring local nature to learn and create.

The installation will be live on October 15th, from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm, with the artist present to share zines and take questions.

The artist wants to acknowledge that we live, learn, work, play, explore and this sculpture rests on the land within the Between the Lakes Purchase (Treaty 3), the treaty lands and territory of the Mississauga’s of the Credit. She recognizes that the Anishinnabe, and Hodinöhsö:ni' peoples have long-standing and ongoing relationship with the land and each other. The Attawandaron people are part of the archaeological record.
