remember our earliest connections to nature
Reconnect Ourselves to the ‘Other Than Human’ World
In the summer of 2013 acclaimed wildlife painter Mark Hobson partnered with Raincoast Foundation and gathered talented BC artists to a paint-in of the Great Bear Raincoast, a breathtakingly beautiful wild area nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountain Range.
At the time, the Centre for Earth & Spirit was running a storytelling project, lead by Margo McLoughlin: Calling All Elders. It was an invitation to remember our earliest connections to nature as a way to reconnect ourselves to the ‘other than human’ world and to place. Robin June Hood and Ben Fox set off for the Great Bear Rainforest to capture the artists’ stories of how they connected to nature through their art.
