Stories about place

PAUSE PAVILION PARTNER

Dominant mythologies celebrate Vancouver as a young, new city built by European settlers about 200 years ago. But this is, in fact, an ancient place, rich with over 10,000 years of Coast Salish culture. Listening to oral histories, sharing diverse perspectives of place can expand understandings and challenge colonial erasures. Join us for an evening of stories about these beautiful lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, often named the most liveable city in the world.  Curated and moderated by Kamala Todd, Metis-Cree – filmmaker and urban geographer.

Featuring:

  • Renisa Mawani, Sociology and colonial legal history UBC professor
  • Wil George, Tsleil-Waututh poet and writer and winner of the 2017 Mayor’s award for emerging artist in Literary Arts
  • Audrey Siegl, Musqueam activist
  • Salia Joseph, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Snuneymuxw singer

PAUSE is Indian Summer Festival’s first ever full outdoor programming hub. Against a spectacular view of the North Shore mountains and downtown Vancouver, PAUSE is situated at the site of the village of sən̓aʔqʷ (pronounced Sun’ahk), currently known as Vanier Park. Housing a festival within the festival, PAUSE features free events every day from July 6th to July 15th. Events at this venue — Gratitude Song, Mythical Vancouver, PAUSE in the Park and Tiffin Talks — include all-star performances, talks and dialogues, food, workshops, and visual art, featuring a wide range of local and international artists.

The PAUSE Pavilion’s unique design was the result of an international design competition organized by the non-profit school DBR (Design Build Research) for TED2017. The contest winner, designer Alsu Sadrieva in Russia, thoughtfully conceptualized PAUSE as an outdoor space to reflect, gather, and interact within.

As part of Indian Summer Festival’s Taiké stream, PAUSE programming emphasizes collaborations and conversations between South Asian and Indigenous artists.
