SEED Description

SEED: habitat + migration is a neighbourhood public art project that uses local bird habitat as a framework for engaging participants in sharing their own experiences of migration.

Led by Artists Jaimie Robson and Alison Maddaugh, the project will reclaim and re-activate an underused corridor of grass located at East Hastings Street at Penticton. The ubiquitous lawn boulevard at this site will betransformed it into a green respite in this commercial urban setting. This vibrant landscape will address project themes of migration and change, while attracting pollinators and providing bird habitat. Custom street furnishings featuring neighbourhood anecdotes about migration and neighbourhood change will provide a place for pause to pedestrian shoppers, and local passersby.

SEED invites residents of the Hastings Sunrise Neighbourhood to generate imagery and stories that will inform the design of a public art installation. For more information or to participate email us at info at
