What Are Our Supports?

Faced with environmental, social, and political precarity, what are our supports? Five artist groups inhabiting an in-between public space in downtown Vancouver offer a response to these questions. Their projects made forms of connection, self-organisation and mutual aid, friendship as a medium, and collective, critically engaged pleasure activism visible. ‘What Are Our Supports?’ looks at the frameworks artists propose in working to create change in a city rampant with urban development and regulation. It chronicles documentation from each project and presents critical essays, poetry, and reprinted texts by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson and Celine Condorelli.
