Youth members from the Global Pax Collective, along with mentors, friends, and family, will share visual art and videos related to the cycles of life & death and how these are present across all living creatures in the natural and human worlds.
Life & Death artistic perspectives seek to contribute to the conversation about the existential paradoxes of dying while living and living while dying. We will use visual storytelling that includes multicultural mythologies and metaphors.

Global PAX Collective are excited to launch our month-long artist residency at the Ministry of Casual Living. We are a self-identified community collective that includes Indigenous and non-Indigenous from around the globe who live in Victoria, B.C., newcomers in Victoria, members of the Queer and BIPOC communities and Allies.
Our mission is to promote peace and healthy communities through arts with a rights-based approach and intergenerational and multicultural perspectives. We believe that working together is essential, and we have open doors for creators and artists to join as their availability permits. We believe that collaboration enhances the creative processes. Therefore, we seek to create spaces for co-creating art for peace and planetary health with the global community.
Since 2019, we have coordinated artistic residences and cultural exchanges between Mexican
artists and artists from the Coast Salish region.
This event is part of the TIME & SPACE BIPOC Artist Residency series hosted by the Ministry of Casual Living. For more information please visit ministryofcasualliving.ca/residencies
