Vancouver was home to over 50 salmon streams, most of which have been buried underground in sewers. One of these streams runs along St. George Street, which flows down to the Emily Carr campus. Over the past decade, a number of students and faculty, including Rita Wong, have worked to honour this historic stream and to imagine a more water-friendy future in the neighbourhood.
Activities have included a street mural that runs between 7th and 8th Avenues on St. George Street; block parties; booths at Celebrate Mount Pleasant Days; imagining sessions at Mount Pleasant Elementary School; a stream parade; storytelling; and more ways to animate the Rainway.
