Event Description

Introducing yourself, informed by a Coast Salish worldview, grounds people in starting things off in a good way. It helps connect us to our ancestors, and reminds us of who we are, and where we come from. Tiffany facilitates participants in grounding in authenticity, respect for land, self, ancestors, and spirit. We will explore how grounding supports the creative process of Hold Steady: A Field School.

Artist Bio

Tiffany Joseph is a writer, visual and oral storyteller, young knowledge carrier of historical and plant knowledge, and an educator. She is trained in motion picture production, and has created short films for her W̱SÁNEĆ community. She grounds her work by sharing this knowledge through on the land learning, and ecological restoration.


The workshop will take place outside at PKOLS (Mount Douglas Park). We will be outside at picnic area A, located next to the PKLOS parking lot (off of Churchill Drive), bathrooms, and beach.


The workshop is free, with free childcare available. The facilitator will be using a microphone during her talk. The workshop will take place about 200 m from washrooms, which are wheelchair accessible, but there are no gender neutral facilities.

There will be limited picnic seating, as well as a few blankets available to sit on the ground.

The closest bus stops are 12, 28, and 39.

Land Acknowledgement

The workshop will be taking place on traditional and unceded W̱SÁNEĆ territory.

We are mindful of the cultural impacts of ongoing colonialism and dispossession of Indigenous peoples as we continue to engage communities and hold events in this region. We will continue to learn, unlearn, and re-learn about the lands and peoples who have been here since time immemorial.


Artemisia Institute

We are located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa’wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. We seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies, and our diverse, evolving communities.

Integrate Arts Society

The mandate of the Integrate Art Society is to strengthen the presence of the arts on Vancouver Island through public awareness and advocacy for regional artists, curators, arts organizations, and art spaces. The society aims to deliver this by creating accessible and interactive arts programming for the general public, showcasing multidisciplinary art practices, and equipping art practitioners with opportunities for knowledge transfer and skill development.
