Arrivals Workshop & Residencies Slideshow

Posted on July 29, 2020

In 2008-9 Co-facilitators Diane Roberts, Heather Hermant and Danielle Smith and Rosemary Georgeson travelled to 5 cities across Canada to research and develop the Arrivals Personal Legacy methodology. The workshop series culminated in an unforgettable 10-day collaborative workshop with 17 Indigenous and Cross-Cultural interdisciplinary artist collaborators. The photo collage displayed here are snippets of the discoveries made, gestures and artworks created.

The slideshow could use a soundtrack so if any Arrivals Alumni feel inspired to add sound to this in the form of music, soundscapes and/or spoken word. Please do. See the SeedPool Users Guide for instructions on how to collaborate on a Seed.
