“Falling Boundaries: New Perspectives on Old Growth Forest” will present three contemporary viewpoints concerning the state of Old Growth Forests on Vancouver Island and surrounding areas. From artistic, scientific and First Nations perspectives, the evening will highlight 3 illustrated talks. David Ellingsen, a photographic artist, will speak about his recent series Falling Boundaries. Gina Thomas, a Guardian Watchman for the Tlowitsis First Nation, will share her experiences and observations of the accumulative impacts of natural resource extraction on her traditional territory. Julie Neilsen, currently completing her PhD in forest ecology at Simon Fraser University, is working as a consultant for the Nanwakolas Council Society in Campbell River.
A Q/A session will follow the three presentations. This is an Art+Earth Festival lecture.
