Creating Small Changes with Carrielynn Victor
Opus Resource Library

"We don’t all have worldwide solutions for things, but to be able to observe and create small changes around us in a creative way is a very satisfying thing as an artist."

Born and raised in S’olh Temexw, Artist Carrielynn Victor (Xémontalot) combines ancient and modern design principles to create murals, illustrations, and exhibition pieces. Her works offer insight into local history and stories, and feature elements from the natural world.

Artists have long been fascinated by and respectful of the planet we inhabit.

Through the creative process, we have the power to promote environmentalism and make green initiatives a priority in cultural conversations.

This April, we're diving into the myriad ways that artists can forge meaningful connections with nature and integrate sustainable practices into their artistic pursuits, while exploring diverse perspectives on the interplay between art and environmentalism.

  • How does a connection to nature influence our work? 
  • What sustainable practices can we incorporate into our creative process? 
  • How can we use our platform as artists to promote environmentalism and inspire others to prioritise sustainability in their work and daily lives?

To help us explore "Living A Greener Practice" we spoke with artists Carrielynn Victor(above), Natasha Lavdovsky, and Marcus Bowcott.

Watch each of their respective reflections on their creative life: their art practice, social impact, and hopes for the future.
