TERRAIN OF THOUGHT for 12th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2015 in Vancouver on Oct 31 2015
Workshop & Interactive Exhibit
TERRAIN OF THOUGHT with Ruth Howard
Friday October 30, 1pm – 4pm
Carnegie 3rd floor Gallery, 401 Main
Also October 31 & November 2
Last spring, over 75 artists traveled across Canada from Vancouver to PEI on the Train of Thought, with stops in 25 cities, towns and First Nation communities: a journey of reconciliation and collaboration through participatory art-making between First Nations and settler-immigrant artists and communities. Launched with a Leave-taking Ceremony in the Downtown Eastside, Train of Thought was produced by Jumblies Theatre (Ontario) and partners across Canada, including Vancouver Moving Theatre. To move forward on this vital work, Ruth Howard – one of the festival’s favorite visiting artists and the artistic director of Jumblies Theatre – returns to the Downtown Eastside to collaborate with Train of Thought artists on creating Terrain of Thought for the Carnegie 3rd floor gallery.
The artistic team will work with Carnegie patrons and festival guests to build a mini-landscape out of assorted materials, text and images from the national tour and the Downtown Eastside. The exhibit will be created over four days in three display cases, through open workshops. Come and contribute to an emerging imaginative terrain woven from thoughts on how we can live together on shared territory.
The artists: Ruth Howard, Bill Beauregarde, Columpa Bobb, Priscillia Tait, and Savannah Walling.
This event was on Day 4 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
