Precipice is an art exhibition that tells stories of biodiversity loss and hope in British Columbia. At Precipice, seven BC-based artists will compel you to mourn, understand and ultimately protect the lands and waters of Canada’s most biodiverse province.

Running from September 15-24, Precipice is an exhibition and gathering place where artists, biologists and activists will teach, play and host conversations about biodiversity with the community.

Precipice features work by Cherry Archer, Nell Burns, Adea Chung, Grace Lee, Jesse Recalma, Sarah Ronald, and Clare Wilkening and is curated by Rachael Ashe.


Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, British Columbia (CPAWS-BC)

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – British Columbia Chapter (CPAWS-BC) protects wilderness in every corner of BC and deep into the ocean. CPAWS-BC supports the creation of large, well-managed, connected protected areas where native plants and animals thrive, now and forever; and where people and communities can live off the land and ocean without impacting the ability of future generations to do the same.

We work to safeguard large parks, protected areas and wildlife corridors – places like Tatshenshini, Muskwa Kechika, South Okanagan-Similkameen, Gwaii Haanas, and the Scott Islands.

In the past 50+ years, CPAWS has played a lead role in protecting over half a million square kilometres – an area bigger than New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador put together!
