THE FORESHORE LISTENS: SEA LEGS
Saturday September 29, 4:30-6:30 pm
Meet at the bike racks in front of Science World, False Creek.
Join urbanist Sarah Moore on an hour-long walk and mobile listening party that considers the stories and spaces of False Creek, from fertile tidal flats to its current state. Sea Legs is one of a series of podcasts based on and informed by The Foreshore Sessions.
The Foreshore initiative asks; how do we generate conditions of emergence? How do we take up space differently? How do we support unruly practices and futures?
About the Sea Legs audio download: Sea Legs wants to hold you in the spaciousness of multiple past, present and possible future shorelines, and to give you the footing to see from there. This a compilation of what I heard in the Foreshore Sessions and audio works about space, story and tide in the city. I’ve pulled out threads of buried stories and cramped spaces, and tried to bring forward the many ways contributors are working to push aside heavy layers of institutionalized impatience and erasure to let in the more open physical, temporal, emotional and psychological space we need.
Bring headphones and a device that plays MP3 tracks. Sea Legs can be downloaded in advance or streamed at www.theforeshore.org. Event takes place rain or shine. Mobility accommodations available; please contact organizer: firstname.lastname@example.org www.theforeshore.org www.othersights.ca This event is part of BC Culture Days.
