5 things to do on the North Shore this weekend

If a 1.6-kilometre trail walk that highlights sustainability, culture and Indigenous history sounds right up your alley, the new CapU 50 Trail might be worth checking out. The pathway cuts through and around Capilano University, passing by some of the campus’s most bucolic nature spots. Visit capu50.capilanou.ca/whats-happening/great-ideas/capu50-trail/ for more information.

If you find yourself passing through the Shipyards at Lower Lonsdale on Sunday around 4 p.m., it might be worth stopping by the large outdoor fountain space in front of Polygon Gallery. Small Stage, a non-profit dance organization that specializes at performing in unconventional venues, will be giving an outdoor performance. For the month of July, the organization will be delivering dance programming every Sunday at 4 p.m.

This one sounds like a walk in the park. Visit North Vancouver City Library tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a Parks Canada session on outdoor education for kids and adults. For any budding outdoors person, one of the lessons will be on the basics of campsite setup, including how to pitch a tent. All ages are welcome to attend, though children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Registration is not required, but space is limited.

If you’ve got the time, Polygon Gallery has quite the experience. The Lower Lonsdale gallery is presenting Christian Marclay: The Clock tonight – the gallery will stay open overnight for the 24-hour screening, which is a synchronized cinematic montage featuring film and television footage from the last 70 years. The time represented in each clip is synchronized with actual time. The Polygon is hosting additional screenings of The Clock at the end of the month, once in August, and twice in September, respectively. Visit the gallery’s website for more information.

Go Figure, a new exhibition at Cityscape Community ArtSpace, explores the human figure and psyche with works from artists Susanna Blunt, Dion Kliner and Alexandra Phillips. The exhibition features artwork in a number of different mediums. The gallery is open today and tomorrow until 5 p.m.
