Black Diamond Dust opens tomorrow at the Nanaimo Art Gallery
Black Diamond Dust is a multi-site art exhibition, which considers the sedimentary nature of stories and histories. The title Black Diamond Dust refers to the coal mining industry that Nanaimo was built upon; an industry that both formed and fragmented communities through economic development, racial segregation and labour inequity, and served as the foundation of global industrialization.

Today Vice published a photo series I made in July about the Unist’ot’en occupation. Four years ago the Unist’ot’en recalimed their traditional territory in response to the Enbridge and Pacific Trails Pipelines, which would drive directly through their unceded lands. I wrote a short story along with the series, which you can view here. Please give it a look and lend the Unist’ot’en your support.
