"As artists we are the myth-makers of who we are as people and we hold those myths in our family stories, passed down through time, and in our fiction; we hold them in our poems and in our music; we hold them in our paintings, in our pottery, in our tapestries and in our sculpture; we hold them in our dance and in our drama; in our photography, in our film and in our video. We hold those myths in the work that is inspired by tradition as well as that which is fueled with the urgency to experiment and explore. It is work that comments and work that questions. It is work that explodes with triumph, screams with grief, staggers with wonder and crumbles with humility. We are the myth-makers of who we are as people and we constantly place and replace that myth into the world. And what we do becomes part of a vast and diverse visceral vocabulary through which we communicate - in a large, public and global arena, and at the very same instant - with a very intimate, personal and private connection to the heart." Ruby Truly, Spry Memorial Lecture Series, Vancouver, BC, Canada, 2003.
