Deadhead will be welcoming visitors whenever the OPEN sign is hanging on the side of the barge. Watch for it most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 3 to 5 pm. When the sign is out, take the Granville Island Ferry from the dock in Heritage Harbour in front of the Vancouver Maritime Museum ($2 each way).
Sunday, August 24 OPEN HOUSE, 2 — 5 pm — free ferry service that day!
Feelin’ It: Variant Improvised Percussive Structures
6:30 — 7:30pm
Following the Open House a mass of percussionists will perform aboard Deadhead for an onshore audience. A complex sonic work will be crafted through multiple layering of simple rhythms.

Grow diy Manual
From May 1st to November 30th, 2011 Other Sights for Artists’ Projects presented Grow, a project by Vancouver artist Holly Schmidt. The Grow DIY Manual draws from the writing and creative projects generated during the project.
Inspired by the Farmers’ Almanac which is a repository for sage advice about gardening, weather predictions and canning recipes, the Grow DIY Manual brings together critical writing, illustrated DIY projects, weather reports and local seasonal recipes. The manual acts as both a reflection on the Grow project and a look forward to future possibilities.
Contributors include: Barbara Cole, Randy Lee Cutler, Magnolia Pauker, Alexander McNaughton, and Holly Schmidt.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. Learn more about the project.
I Know What I Want: Open Studio
An Other Sights collaboration with The Western Front and 221A
Other Sights is collaborating with The Western Front and 221A on a publicly-sited research intensive about the possible futures of the Kingsway, Broadway and Main Street neighbourhood in Vancouver. In addition to conducting interviews with local independent business people, cultural leaders and members of the design and planning community, we gathered and circulated ideas from neighbours at the Western Front 40th Anniversary party.
Between July 22 and 28, members of the Other Sights collective created an Open Studio at the Kingsgate Mall. Using an aerial view of the intersection, we modeled the desires that were offered on site and through othersights.ca. The model adapted, combined and recombined these ideas throughout the week.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia. Learn more about the project.
