Storytelling, Embodiment, Archives, Book-swap and Audio Zines

This event is free and open to the public
September 26, 7-9 pm,  Western Front, 303 8 Ave E, Vancouver

Please join us for the launch of four experimental audio zines edited by Vanessa Campbell, Stacey Ho, Sarah Moore and Dan Pon that respond, expand-on and incorporate elements of past Foreshore events. These works include sound pieces commissioned for The Foreshore by Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Lindsay Dobbin, Journée sans Culture, Laiwan, Justin Langlois, Cecily Nicholson, Kristina Lee Podesva, Carol Sawyer, and Jay White.

To celebrate and introduce these new works, Other Sights has partnered with Western Front, together we will host a captivating evening of discovery which includes:

  • dedicated listening stations for each of the four audio zines
  • archival images of False Creek and contemporary ephemera from the False Creek Flats.
  • a traditional welcome and territorial acknowledgment by Musqueam elder Larry Grant. Grant will also share a Musqueam story chosen for its teachings to all peoples living in these territories and will discuss the philosophies embedded in hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓, the original language of the story.
  • exploring the collective body, Luciana F. D’Anunciação will facilitate playful, mindful and ever-changing experiences and activities
  • a book trade – event participants are encouraged to bring a book to trade, allowing them to share something wonderful and to refresh their own personal bookshelves as well.

Other Sights, Western Front, as well as all participating artists, storytellers and zinesters welcome you to be a part of The Foreshore Listens. We look forward to seeing you on the 26th.
