7pm – Here Today Here Tomorrow
an interactive discussion about Art, Place and Community with invited artists
Pictou Academy Auditorium, 88 Patterson Street, Pictou NS
What is the future of rural art practices and art in Pictou County?
In this discussion, artists are asked more critical questions that pertain to festival’s overall themes, successes and failures. How does place, art and community interact in the contemporary art? Invited artists Marlene Creates and Sheilah Wilson share their experiences and thoughts of working with local communities while curators Mary MacDonald and Katherine Dennis help to facillitate community discussion with evening’s audience.
This is your chance to ask questions about the W(here) project, and to discuss future events for the county! Many of W(here)’s local artists will also be in attendance. Come and share your knowledge of cultural experiences “here” past, present and future.
Pictou Academy is located at 88 Patterson Street in Pictou, NS.
