About the exhibition:

"The demise of the honey bee, up-purposing green waste, urban bird habitat, the global mobility of food; artists’ projects inform social, ecology activism that calls us all to change. Cultivate features the work of artists who draw on urban ecology as subject-matter and material to explore environmental concerns and the city."

"Cultivate is the first annual exhibition in the series "State of the Practice", a Park Board Arts, Culture and Environmental Art project that highlights social and community-engaged art practices in Vancouver."
