In cities and towns of all sizes around BC, nature and the city are constantly at play. This could be a quiet park nestled within a neighbourhood of houses, or weeds poking out from the edges of a sidewalk. This exhibition space is geared toward kids and the ways that they see their surroundings, how they see nature in the city, and also perhaps how they see their city in nature. We invite kids and classes around the province to share their experiences through art, images, poetry and stories.

This exhibition space was co-created with Kathryn Cook and her Grade 3/4 class at South Park Family School in Victoria, BC, on the territory of the Lekwungen speaking people (the Songhees and Xwsepsum Nations).
