Islands Institute Courses and Diploma Program: Through an innovative, interdisciplinary online education program, the Islands Institute fosters understanding of the ecological systems and social fabric of the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island, while initiating creative projects for change.    




Through an innovative, interdisciplinary online education program now under development, Islands Institute courses will help participants use art to address real-world issues in ecology, equity and economy, while they explore creative solutions for the survival of the planet.

The Islands Institute offers professional and personal development to artists who want to extend their practice, educators, planners, environmentalists, citizens, community service providers, elders and activists. Admission is open. Course materials are available for independent study, by donation.

Participants tally the economic, social and spiritual costs of current land-use trajectories, while they find ways to initiate a different future in their home communities.
