Together Apart has been envisioned as a way of making and holding space for 2SQ/Indigiqueer folks to come together and to be in dialogue with one another so that we might centre the conversations we’d like to hear or that we feel have been absent in our communities. However, our intentions are also simple: to celebrate and enjoy one another’s creativity and dedication to our practices, and to recognize one another in such a way that speaks across the distances we experience in our living and movement through our worlds.

grunt gallery launched of Journey to Kaho’olawe, an artist publication by Hans Winkler and T’uy’t-tanat Cease Wyss. The artist book is the result of a four year process centred on the Hawaiian Island of Kaho’olawe, a sacred site to the Hawaiians in recovery after being occupied as a practice range by the American military. Returned to the Hawaiians in the 1990s, the island is being remediated and returned to its natural state. The publication also documents the Kanaka presence in British Columbia since the late 1700s when Native Hawaiians travelled to BC with some staying and marrying into the Squamish peoples on the BC Coast and many other indigenous communities throughout the region. With texts by Wyss and historians Jean Barman and Bruce McIntyre Watson in addition to Hans Winkler the book represents the four year research project by the artists. In conjunction with the launch of the publication grunt gallery and the artists presented a week long series of events celebrating Kaho’olawe and the Kanaka presence in BC from May 25 to the 29th, 2017.
