A time capsule in reverse. A love letter of hopes, dreams and fears. A labyrinth of connectivity.

On now at the ArtStarts Gallery, Cause and Effect presents a selection of projects from Kindergarten to Grade 12 students from 9 different schools across BC that unpack the question, “What effects do the different layers of history, place and context that construct our present have on our future?”

From engineering contraptions that produce a chain reaction to sound mapping, 1,717 students made insightful reflections about place, memory and myth, interpreting narratives from the past and present—and making their own for the future. What narratives will you make? What effects are you going to cause today?

The ArtStarts Gallery is the only free, public gallery in Canada exclusively dedicated to young people's art. The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4:30pm. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
