Artists in Communities False Creek Mudflats with Sylvan Hamburger

Mudflats, Sylvan Hamburger’s project, draws its name from the ecosystem that predated settler development in False Creek. Throughout the project, Sylvan will glean materials from the neighbourhood’s industrial past to better understand its current circumstance. Through printmaking, drawing, and textiles, Mudflats explores salvaged materials and creative place-making.

Sylvan is hosting regular pop-up workshops in and around the False Creek Community Centre. These free, public events are an opportunity to meet neighbours, learn about the area’s history, and create vibrant installations that will hang throughout the community centre. All are welcome to join – keep an eye out for the colourful tent.

Sylvan will be accepting donations of old sheets and fabric. Bring your own linens!
