Get ready to explore the city with Chris D. This fun and accessible class will take students all over Vancouver to see what secrets it has to offer. Vancouver’s exceptional transit system will be utilized to explore parks, museums, exciting architecture and local events. Students can expect to follow migratory birds as they leave in the autumn and arrive in the spring; experience contemporary art exhibitions that speak to Vancouver’s place in world; and learn about the history of colonial settlement on the lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. If a student wants to be outside, learn about the environment, and build the skills necessary to navigate the city independently, then this class is for them.
