Our main project in 2016 involved working with community members to answer the question: How we could make kites using only what we found in our backyards and city parks? Then taking what we learned to the larger community at various festivals. Here is the short video documentation of the work.
Below is the archive of various postings abut the project while underway.
August 2016: The Work Continues!
We are thrilled to announce that our Spring research labs for making kites using only local plants/resources has received funding from BC Arts Council (Arts-Based Community Development) to continue with the public this fall sharing what was learned- so watch for us at Fall Harvest celebrations and Culture Days events!
The work made is on display at the Roundhouse Community Centre in the WINDOW gallery this summer and the storyboard below describes our process and who was involved. More photos are online on flickr here.
