This years funding drive artwork was designed by Sarah Jim, a member of the W̱SÁNEĆ nation and local artist. This is what Sarah has to share about this year’s design:
“WEXES (wuhck-us, frog in SENĆOŦEN) is an indicator of spring. They’re a beautiful symbol of new beginnings and transformation. Their song announces the arrival of warmth returning to the earth. The land starts to bloom and grow again, nourished by the rain and sun. This time of year in the W̱SÁNEĆ 13 moon calendar is called the WEXES moon. The CFUV Funding Drive also coincides with this time of year! The station provides the opportunity for voices to grow. They really help people bloom and spread the love of song. Of course, the WEXES is surrounded by flowers and life which are representative of the beauty and growth that CFUV facilitates.
The tarot card design was chosen to emphasise the destiny shift that CFUV presents. It’s a safe and accessible space where folks can navigate their sonic future, share what they love with others, and learn. Tarot cards help guide the exploration of self and promote reflection. I was hoping to capture the magic of transformation, fate, and wonder with this design while honouring the journey of growth.“
