Join us for a tour of selected works in the Outdoor Art Collection on UBC’s Vancouver campus. Taking place during the 2021 UBC Homecoming weekend, the tours will centre on questions of home, territory, and relationships to the land that UBC’s Vancouver campus occupies, which is the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. This year, we are offering two tours. Tours can accommodate up to fifteen people and spots will be reserved in advance on a first-come first-serve basis.
To RSVP / Register please send your name, your city, and affiliation (student, staff/faculty, UBC community, your degree, and year of graduation if applicable).
