c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city

April 21, 7pm

Join MOA, the Musqueam First Nation, and the Museum of Vancouver for a series of groundbreaking exhibitions that will connect Vancouverites with the living legacy of c̓əsnaʔəm, the ancient villages and burial sites upon which the city of Vancouver is built. Highlighting language, oral history, and the community’s recent actions to protect c̓əsnaʔəm, the exhibitions invite visitors to engage with the long and dynamic history of the land. MOA’s exhibit features 3D modelling of maps and artifacts, original videography, family-friendly interactivity, and soundscapes blending traditional and modern sounds.

On April 21 join Musqueam community members, Elders, artists, and activists as they share their knowledge and explore the themes in the MOA exhibition. The tour begins at 7pm and is free with admission.
