About Mudflats

Get involved! Contact Sylvan at or drop by the False Creek Community Centre at 1318 Cartwright St, Vancouver, BC 

Mudflats draws its name from the ecosystem that predated settler development in False Creek. Over the course of the project, artist Sylvan Hamburger will glean materials from the neighbourhood’s industrial past to better understand its current circumstance. Through printmaking, drawing and textiles, Mudflats upholds engagement with these salvaged materials as a means of creative placemaking.

Sylvan is hosting regular pop-up workshops in and around the False Creek Community Centre. These free, public events are an opportunity meet neighbours, learn about the area’s history, and create vibrant installations that will hang throughout the community centre. All are welcome to join – keep an eye out for the colourful tent starting April 2022!
