The Women in the Way project continues!

This Sunday, June 2, 2019 – I’ll be speaking at the Longhouse Dialogues. From 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. At Longhouse in Harbour Green Park, 1199 West Cordova Street (Vancouver, BC).

My talk is connected to the Women Deliver and Feminist Deliver conferences, in which over 6,000 world leaders, activists, parliamentarians, journalists and young people will come to Canada to discuss gender equality and the health, rights and well-being of women and girls.

This is an incredible week in our city!

The program description: “Artist and educator Sally Buck photographs women politicians, activists, and community leaders in British Columbia who are ages 50 and over. Belonging to a demographic represented infrequently in media, they are portrayed during acts of leadership and their images stylized with techniques from graphic and fine arts, to highlight each woman’s individuality, environment, focus and achievement.

The artist will tell stories of engaging with the women in the portraits, of making the artworks, and of dialoguing around them with women, the public, and with secondary students. Audience members are invited to interpret the artworks, discuss themes of gendered imagery and representations of power in art and the media, and share their experiences of learning/ collaborating with women leaders ages 50 and up.”

It’s going to be sunny and temperate by the waters of False Creek. I walked there today and sat in on a Longhouse Dialogue. Luminous, generous, and stimulating.
