Vancouver continues to have a very complicated relationship with development and urbanization, and has faced multiple challenges arising from building booms that have shaken this city and tested our ears since the late 1880’s. The southern shores of False Creek have shaken, reverberated and been seemingly turned upside down from thunderclaps that mark this changing urban landscape: indigenous communities; colonization; industry; residential; commercial. This soundwalk invites participants to pause and linger over the sound of one’s presence, ripples of fleeting energies that nonetheless evoke past markers and lives. We will walk, listen and escape along evolving and eroding pathways that point to historical echoes of Vancouver’s past, traverse alongside the present, as well as invite sonic imaginings of what the future might have in store.

Note: this soundwalk will end at the Hadden Park field house in time for participants to take part in soundgarden – Hadden Park, presented by Vancouver New Music and Publik Secrets, which runs from 1–4pm.
