Offered in English.
Join Métis herbalist Lori Snyder and Richmond-based muralist Laura Kwok for a FREE guided nature walk around Minoru Park and Richmond City Hall to learn about local plant life, herbal remedies, and our relationship with the Earth from an Indigenous and artistic perspective.
This event is part of a series of artist-led community engagement workshops. The contributions from participants will inform the design of a new mural to be painted on the Richmond Cultural Centre Annex.
Lori Snyder is an Indigenous Metis herbalist and educator with a deep knowledge of wild, medicinal and edible plants that grow in everyday spaces. Through Lori’s eyes, our immediate surroundings take on a new life and offer a wealth of untapped nutritional and ecological resources.
Laura Kwok is a Richmond-based illustrator and muralist. She is captivated by the beauty of nature and her artwork is inspired by the grandeur of the natural world. Her recent work focuses on capturing the fluid and ethereal life cycles of flowers and creating a personal language of floral symbolism as a means of self-expression. Laura is curious about how art plays a therapeutic role in healing humans, creating connections, and strengthening communities.
