The Intersection of Art and Mental Health
During last year’s Pixel Festival, in the early days of the pandemic, Bass Coast Harm Reduction managers Staysee Marie and Farrah shared creative, practical ideas and tips to support mental health. In 2021 Staysee Marie invites members of the Bass Coast community to reflect on the links between art, mental health and culture. Can art support mental health and culture change? How can the arts industry care for its workers? Join Cindy Jiang, Crystal Precious and Handsome Tiger for this rich and hopeful discussion.
Find your personal groove with Andrew Haydock
Andrew Haydock starts class by bringing awareness and identification to one’s body before discovering your favourite moves. This class is simply an offering of ideas to help find new ways of movement and dance. This is an open level workshop, no dance background is needed. If you feel inclined to get dressed up, have something to hydrate yourself with, and get ready to have fun by moving your body.
“Thank you to Carley and Kiki for grooving with me. Shout out to Public Disco for the backdrop, media team, set team, and Defy Gravity dance studio.”
Campfire Cooking with the Bass Coast girls
The Bass Coast girls (Andrea, Liz and Anna) are back with their 2nd annual cooking show. They will show you how to make some campfire classics. Set on the beautiful Squamish River.
FILMING LOCATION INFO
Some Pixel Virtual Festival sets were filmed at Britannia Mine Museum on the unceded, ancestral territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) people. We thank the Museum staff for their warm welcome, professionalism and accommodating our team to film in their facility during a pandemic.
Resource extraction and exploration impact human rights and environmental rights, and disproportionately affect Indigenous people worldwide.
During its operation from 1904 - 1974, Brittania Mine negatively affected The Howe Sound and the Indigenous people of Squamish. After years of remediation, the salmon and other species have started to return.
As a part of our shared commitment to reconciliation and learning, we encourage you to learn with us.
