Colony Farm on Sunday
I will be appearing at Colony Farm on Sunday as Madame Beespeaker. Here is a message from the event's creator and director:
You and yours are personally invited to Public Dreams newest Community Art event A Midsummer Fete - A celebration of Art Environment and Organic Gardening, on Sunday 27th June 1:pm - 5:pm at Colony Farm Regional Park in Coquitlem
We are excited to present an Echo-Art-Mash-Up, where you can spend a lovely afternoon do such things as - writing notes to the bee's (our sacred pollinators) - walking the Labyrinth - learning to band a birds leg - seeing visual art made from invasive plants - listening to the fairy harpist - and having tea with Isolde N Barron (my favourite drag queen) - plus much more...!!!
There's a free shuttle bus from Lougheed skytrain station from 12:30 pm to 5:30 pm (...so it's super easy to come out and join us....)
“We like to think of A Midsummer fete as sort of 'soft activism' – introducing people to ideas of sustainability, art and beauty in the environment we live in.”
“This event represents an exciting new direction for us, It’s wonderful to be working with Metro Vancouver, who are such strong supporters of community art. These partnerships are vital, in the wake of drastic cuts to arts funding in this Province.”
There is an event link on Facebook, so go there to check out the photos and details.
Really looking forward to seeing you there - hope you will be able to come and support us (and have a lovely time doing so)!
