    June 19 - September 18. Every day in Legacy's Sidewalk Gallery, located outside on the Broad Street side of Legacy Downtown. What's your vibe? This was the question that Jamaican-Canadian photographer, Nathan Smith, asked the youth group, Melanin Magic, during a student-led photo shoot one sunny afternoon in May. In asking this question, the students were posed with the challenge to capture how they were feeling on that day, outside their classroom walls as they looked toward a post-pandemic world. What emerged from these self-directed portraits was their desire to be untethered and fully in the moment of who they were, and who they dream to be. Curated by Darius Cordner and Nicole Achtymichuk Photos by Nathan Smith, Sophia Ho, Grace Morrison and Tasha Henry Graphic Art by Dre Gutierrez Reyes Melanin Magic Students: Daisy, Lia, Tabi, Maheen, Catalina, Summer, Aya, Gabby, Bayan, Tendo, Keira, Sophia, Soren, Cadir, Emmanuel, Tra'she, Jenny, Grace, and Darius Image: Nathan Smith, FLIGHT, 2021.

    Tuesday – Saturday, 4:30pm – 10:00pm. Legacy Sidewalk Gallery. Curated by Nicole Achtymichuk (UVic, BSc ’20, Young Canada Works Curatorial Intern) What the Land Holds is a contemporary video art exhibition that examines the land as integral to Indigenous histories and futures, and as a site of ongoing colonization and alienation. The land holds layers of interpretation that establish places of inclusion and exclusion. The land holds what humans have created, blurring the lines between natural and artificial. The land holds stories and teachings, and returning to these is essential to our continued survival on the land. This is the inaugural exhibition in Legacy’s new Sidewalk Gallery, a space designed to activate and inspire community collaborations and to make art more accessible to the public.

    Saturdays, February 13, 20, 27 | 11am – 12pm Facebook event Beginning at 630 Yates Street, continuing into downtown Victoria While the exhibition Life Stories gives space to the objects and associated memories that inhabit our lives, Connie Morey’s (UVic Alumni, MEd ’07, Phd ‘17) performed sculpture Hearing Voices explores the voices and stories of life in seemingly uninhabited spaces. As a way to extend Life Stories beyond what we see and hear in the Gallery into the surrounding downtown neighbourhood, Connie will carry a collection of abandoned spaces on her back as she walks through the streets and alleys of Victoria. Through walking, she activates spaces that are seen as inactive, exploring what it might look like to hear the voices of those who inhabit spaces deemed vacant. What is the voice of a decomposing building, of the overgrowth of nature on concrete walls, of the layered processes of graffiti on unkept structures? What are the life stories of the spaces we don’t often see?
