After months of organizing, fundraising, collaborating and communicating, Patti Fraser and I were thrilled to finally gather our crew of amazingly talented young media artists this week. We shared food and got to know each other a bit as we hammered out some important project details like scheduling and production expectations.
Our home for our preproduction period and our speaker series is the Purple Thistle Arts and Activism centre. This funky, youth-run studio space operates under an ethos of radical generosity and hospitality, two principles Patti and I wholeheartedly support and try to infuse in every community engaged art project we create.
You can meet our crew under the people link of our site.
We hope to share project updates, photos, relevant information and eventually our finished media works on this blog, so please check back regularly.
And we begin!
