Short cold days and long winter nights is the perfect time to get lost at home in hand projects galore. Below is a growing list of things that have inspired thoughtful listening while working on hand projects.
Favourites from our executive director Sharon Kallis:
Canadian actor and writer Dan Levy has been taking the University of Alberta’s Indigenous Awareness and Reconciliation Online course this year, and though I haven’t taken the class myself yet, I love listening to these weekly check in’s with professors Dr. Tracy Bear & Dr. Paul Gareau, and learn so much from the conversations. As guest Matthew Wildcat said in one of modules, “the craft of decolonization is an ongoing practice we need to each define for ourselves thru conversations with others.” Find all the conversations on Dan’s youtube page for this project here.
Heart of the City Festival went virtual this year! EartHand loves partnering with Vancouver Moving Theatre in some way each year for this festival, but it is always hard to make it out to all the many things that happen in the community and the FOMO is real. this year so much was virtual or recorded for sharing we get to savor the festival all winter long! Find the archived events here, and don’t miss the Earthand Guild leader roundtable dialogue This Gives us Strength: From the land to online.
The Ground Shots Podcast is an audio project exploring our relationship to ecology through conversations and storytelling.
