Port Coquitlam Events for Tri-Cities Culture Days Weekend

Here’s what’s happening in Port Coquitlam!

Port Coquitlam Culture Days

Culture Days Lumen Print Workshop
Where: Leigh Square, Port Coquitlam
When:
Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 10:30am to 3:30pm
Details:
 Celebrate your creativity during Culture Days by attending our free, family-friendly art activity with artist Phyllis Schwartz. Phyllis will lead participants through this hands-on lumen print workshop. A lumen print is essentially a solar photogram – a camera-less process involving black and white photographic paper, a subject matter that usually (but not always) consists of an organic material, and of course, the Sun. During this workshop, attendees will work with 2 pieces of 8×10 lumen paper (one to keep and one for display) and organic materials to create their own unique lumen print. Registration is required as space is limited. Free, but registration is limited to 20 participants to secure your spot online (code #37491).

WOMXN: An Exploration of How Womxn Find Their Way in Society
Where: Leigh Square, Port Coquitlam
When:
Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm
Details:
Artist-in-Residence, Jessica Nelson, will be collecting stories and perspectives for her project WOMXN: An Exploration of how Womxn find their way in Society. This studio time is open to all individuals that identify as a womxn, and will not be limited to cis-gendered ‘women’. Nelson’s hope is that this project will be as inclusive as possible, and allow potentially gender variant individuals who may have been pushed out of conversations around womxnhood before, a chance to speak and share with her how they have learnt to be womxn, as well as what were some of the formative experiences they have had growing up as womxn.
