My Teacher, the Mushroom

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Camille Flanjak is a facilitator who uses play, hands-on exercises, thoughtful discussion, and lots of weird metaphors to connect people with food and land. Under the inspiration of the ‘mycelial web’ Camille and her students connect with the earth, deepen their relationships and practice self-interrogation and intersectional compassion. Mushrooms called her into the gateway of the natural world at a very young age, and this presentation is the story of why she finds them so compelling.

From Cultivation to Consumption: The Cannabis Journey

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

What should cannabis consumers (from the canna-curious to the canna-confident) care about when it comes to the cannabis supply chain and consumption experience? A journey from cultivation through to consumption as told through the perspective of Emma Andrews, a Holistic Nutritionist and canna-enthusiast, who pivoted her career into the emerging legal cannabis economy. Cannabis shares a lot more commonalities with our food system than you may think!

Weekend Flowers

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Kate Freeman grows flowers for the purpose of using them in her homespun floral design studio. Weekend Flowers was bred out of creative interest, but Kate also considers environmental sustainability at every step. She thinks there is an opportunity to appreciate flowers grown locally for attributes other than the standards set by the global industry. Kate will be talking about a few of her favourites, as well as some of the quirks that come along with doing a country thing in the city.

A Dressing the Future

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Nicole Dextras creates all sorts of characters in her shared studio on Granville Island. She worked for 10 years as a set and costume designer for local theatre companies and she eventually found her true passion in environmental art and working with ephemeral plant-based materials. Her process is driven by experimentation and she is known for working with unconventional materials. “While it may be impractical to wear clothing made from leaves, our future depends on the growth of sustainable resources.”

Walking With My Ancestors

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Nicole Preissl, an Indigenous designer from Vancouver takes us along her journey in discovering her relationship to the land and its stories. Nicole shares the culture and history of the First Peoples through interactive walks along the streets of False Creek. She uses rope-making with plant materials as a way to connect participants with the land around them and each other. In the end, these are not to be read as utilitarian tools, but tools for the transportation of stories.

One Girl and a Plant

@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Twenty years ago, Pedro Villalon's deal with a girl kicked off a journey across mountains and villages; it also started a deep relationship with a certain plant that quenches the thirst of billions of people.
