Cause and Effect: Young People's Perspectives on Past, Present and Future

February 25, 2017 to September 2, 2017

A time capsule in reverse. A love letter of hopes, dreams and fears. A labyrinth of connectivity.

This exhibition presents a selection of projects from Kindergarten to Grade 12 students from 9 different schools across BC that unpack the question, What effects do the different layers of history, place and context that construct our present have on our future?

From engineering contraptions that produce a chain reaction to sound mapping, 1,717 students made insightful reflections about place, memory and myth, interpreting narratives from the past and present—and making their own for the future.

What narratives will you make? What effects are you going to cause today?
