CANCELLED - In Search of Woo: Monkey, Muse, Mystery

In 1923, Victoria artist Emily Carr went to a Government Street pet shop and traded one of her dogs and $35 cash for a young Javanese macaque. For the next fifteen years, the monkey, named Woo, formed a bond with Carr that proved crucial to her artistic legacy. In a talk based on his 2019 book Woo, The Monkey Who Inspired Emily Carr: A Biography, Grant Hayter-Menzies explores the shared life and legacy of Carr and Woo.
