Rosemary Georgeson: I was born and raised in the commercial fishing industry, spending the first half of my life fishing around Galiano Island and the Salish Sea, sometimes as far as Prince Rupert. Since leaving the industry, I've worked in the arts community as a writer, storyteller and researcher. Recognized in 2009 by the Vancouver Mayor's award for emerging artist and in 2014 as the Vancouver Public Library's Storyteller in Residence, my work is deeply rooted in my family history from Galiano Island.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
