The Future is Floating is a collaboration with SydFest in Australia. In Early 2018, Other Sights producers Vanessa Kwan and Lorna Brown were Curators-in-Residence at Sydney Festival. Work continues on this project with Other Sights again visiting the festival in 2019, also joining them as Canadian Indigenous Artists in Residence, Jeneey Frei Njootli (January 2019), and Cheryl L’Hirondelle (July 2019). For more news and updates on this project, visit our social media channels.
Following the public launch of the Blue Cabin Floating Artist Residency at the Plaza of Nations, False Creek, the first year of programming has begun. Our next event will be an Open Studio at the cabin with artist-in-resident Vicki Couzens. It will take place on October 26th, at 11am until 4pm. Vicki will also host a possum wristband weaving workshop on October 19th at 1pm, at the cabin. If you would like to learn more, please sign up to the Blue Cabin mailing list for Blue Cabin updates.
Other Sights, grunt gallery and C3 have successfully raised two-thirds of the funds required to complete construction on the artist in residence deckhouse and to support the first three years of Blue Cabin programming. There are many ways in which you can support the project, please reach out to Amy Nugent (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out how. Direct donations can also be made through grunt gallery.
In addition to the Big Rock Candy Mountain Website, there are several other locations across the country where you can purchase QA CHEW’S Bubble Trouble Gum. We’ve listed them all for you so you’ll never go without.
Inspired by the mixed texture of self-published artist zines The Foreshore Listens responds to, expands on, and incorporates elements of The Foreshore sessions. The process of developing these audio works started with recordings commissioned from past Foreshore Session presenters. Invited to consider to a series of prompts from a foreshore in the distant future the responses range from ambient recordings to poetry to foley of a longed-for place. Session presenters were Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Lindsay Dobbin, Journée sans Culture, Laiwan, Justin Langlois, Cecily Nicholson, Kristina Lee Podesva, Carol Sawyer, and Jay White. Audio zine editors, Vanessa Campbell, Stacey Ho, Sarah Moore, and Dan Pon draw out complex constellations of thought and insight otherwise latent in the series and crystalizes their depth and urgency. All four zines are now available for live-stream listening and download.
